Harper Dégage! Beat Back the Tory Attack!

The Conservative Party National Convention is being held in Ottawa June 9-11. Stephen Harper gives the keynote address in the evening on June 10th. This address to the gathered Conservative Party members will be his first major address after winning a majority government in the last election.

We invite all those opposed to the Harper's right-wing agenda to come together on Friday, June 10th, and make clear to the Conservative Party that we will not sit idly by while they attack our communities.

A brief rally at Dundonald Park with speakers at 4.30pm will kick-off a festive march which will visit some important locations in the downtown core that are key to the Tory agenda before arriving at the Convention Centre.
