NDP MP LIBBY DAVIES TO JOIN VANCOUVER RALLY AGAINST PROROGATION
Vancouver – Vancouver East MP Libby Davies will join hundreds of concerned citizens at Saturday's “Rally for Canada, Stand Up for Democracy!” protest starting at the Vancouver Art Gallery.
The Vancouver rally is one of many that will take place across Canada to protest the Conservative Government’s move to shut down Parliament by proroguing the House of Commons back in December, 2009. Participants will march from the gallery to Victory Square.
WHAT: Rally for Canada, Stand Up for Democracy!
WHEN: 1:00 PM SATURDAY, JANUARY 23
WHERE: VANCOUVER ART GALLERY to VICTORY SQUARE
“Hundreds of thousands of Canadians are speaking up to say they want their MPs back in the House of Commons,” said Davies. “They need help to recover from the recession, many are still struggling to find work, there is a pensions’ crisis, yet Stephen Harper chose to lock the doors of parliament instead of getting back to work.”
