Stop Harper! Take Back Canada Day
have many reasons to be proud of Canada and of being Canadian on this
national holiday. But, increasingly, we have many reasons to worry about
the direction in which our country is being taken.
government is enacting policies that help multinational corporation, but
harm average Canadians and the natural environment of our great
country. The Harper government is regularly censured in the media and by
international watch-dogs for its undemocratic policies and the
withering state of freedom in this country.
The time has come for
Canadians to stand up, stand together, and take their country back.
Harper’s Canada is not our Canada. Together we can put our country back
on the right path—the path of freedom, equality, and justice.
Rally at Library Square, July 1 at 1:30pm
the past year we have seen the Harper government take Canada through a
hard right turn, making fundamental changes to the country that reach
beyond his mandate and beyond anything indicated in his last election
campaign. Many Canadian’s are concerned by:
• The May 2011
“robocall” election scandal, in which thousands of Canadian voters
received misinformation intended to frustrate their attempts to vote.
The F-35 fighter jet scandal, in which the public was misinformed
as to the true costs of the Harper government’s plan to but new,
astonishingly expensive fighter jets.
• The Harper government’s
open antipathy towards the environmental movement, and the government’s
open championing of pipeline developments that have yet to pass through
the independent review process.
• Aggressive crime and surveillance legislation (Bills c-10 and c-30).
The omnibus bill c-38, which disassembles much of Canada’s
environmental protection legislation, makes worker’s lives harder, and
embeds over 70 changes to Canadian laws, each of which deserves
independent debate in the House of Commons.
