Weekly Action Campaign to Repeal Bill C-51 Continues!
By Thomas Davies
The Working Group to Stop Bill C-51 has shown no signs of slowing down as summer approaches. The month of May saw the Committee reach 116 weekly actions, as it continues to alternate between petition drives and banner drops. May saw the Committee return to some successful locations from previous actions, as well as discovering new locations to bring the demand of “Repeal Bill C-51!”
Banner drops were held at a new location over the busy Lougheed Highway in Burnaby, as well as towards traffic coming of the Patullo Bridge into New Westminster. Now that the bridge has been fully re-opened the response was loud and supportive, despite the heavy rainfall that day.
The Working Group also visited Gilmour Station for the first time in Burnaby, and found a receptive crowd among the many students and workers passing through the station. Once again 22nd Street Station in New Westminster continues to be an important location. Despite printing extra leaflets the Working Group had distributed absolutely every one within an hour, but continued collecting petition signatures and chanting.
As the Trudeau government continues its policy of “Delay, Delay, Delay” on Bill C-51, the Working Group to Stop Bill C-51 continues is own policy of, “Organize, Organize, Organize.” When it comes to human rights, the Committee refuses to back down.
REPEAL BILL C-51!
