Tonight’s “13 heroes” Day of Action will come at a historic moment in the Budget Bill showdown as MPs vote non-stop on hundreds of important opposition amendments that could stop the worst of the damage caused by this bill. We expect this “filibuster” to last all through the night and following day, with a final vote in the House of Commons predicted to come on Monday, June 18.

We know many Conservative MPs have serious concerns about this anti-democratic bill. Imagine them sitting through hours of tedious voting, watching a wave of opposition to the bill pouring in from all across the country. And, the opposition MPs who are fighting the bill will get a huge boost to know that Canadians from coast to coast to coast are standing with them.
If you like, you can also spread the word by posting your support photo as your facebook profile picture, and adding a link to the petition, http://www.leadnow.ca/13heroes so your friends can add their voice.
