      We Demand: Repeal Bill C-51!

      By Noah Fine

      Although Bill C-51 has been passed into law in Canada, the opposition toward it from people in Canada has not yielded. In Vancouver, the Working Group to Stop Bill C-51 has continued with consistent actions approaching people during their daily commute to work and back asking them to take a flier, sign a petition or get involved in the campaign to repeal Bill C-51.

      On July 13, 2015 supporters of the working group organized an outreach rally at one of Greater Vancouver's busiest transit hubs, Metrotown Skytrain Station. Anti C-51 activists passed out thousands of fliers and collected hundreds of signatures from people during their commute. A short rally was held to close the activity with Working Group member and Fire This Time editorial board member Thomas Davies thanking supporters for participating and encouraging people to continue in the struggle until the undemocratic Bill is repealed.

      On July 25, 2015 the campaign continued in one of Vancouver's important ethnic communities which houses poor and working people from many different ethnicities and backgrounds. At Fraser St and 49th Ave in South Vancouver, activists split up onto all corners of the neighbourhoods busiest intersection asking people to sign the petition to repeal Bill C-51.

      An encouraging amount of petition signatures and support received on that day gave confidence to the group to continue organizing in opposition to Bill C-51. The Working Group to Stop Bill C-51 would like to encourage all concerned people in Canada to get involved in the campaign to defend democratic and human rights by demanding: Repeal Bill C-51!
