[Port Moody] – This Saturday, Canadians from across the country are gathering at Conservative MP
offices, and support locations, to protest the Omnibus Budget Bill C-38. The Bill, which makes
changes to over 70 laws, has drawn criticism from former
Conservative cabinet ministers and members of Prime Minister Harper’s own caucus. There will be a rally
at James Moore’s office, in Port Moody.
“The “Blackmark Day of Action” is uniting Canadians opposed to a Budget Bill that contains a sweeping
agenda to remake Canadian society, an agenda that is being rushed through Parliament without fair and
open debate,” said Jamie Biggar, Executive Director of Leadnow.ca.
Participants believe that if the Bill passes unchanged, it will put a black mark on Canadian democracy.
They are looking for 13 “hero” Conservative MPs who will work together to stop the budget, split it apart,
and start over by inviting Canadians to help them craft laws that will work better for all of us.
What: Local event to protest the federal government’s proposed Omnibus Budget Bill, Bill C-38 as part of
national Blackmark Day of Action at Conservative MP and support locations across the country.
Who: Canadians from all walks of life
Where: At the office of James Moore, 2603 St. John's Street, Port Moody
When: Saturday June 2nd, at 12:00 noon
All local events are being organized by volunteers who have signed up online to participate. Leadnow.ca
