Canadians from across the political spectrum are uniting against the omnibus Budget Bill.
According to the Ottawa Citizen, Prime Minister Harper is becoming “increasingly isolated” as more and more Conservatives speak out against his anti-democratic attempt to remake our society.1
The outrageous nature of this bill is provoking incredible statements from conservative politicians. Former Cabinet Minister Tom Siddon said: “We don’t understand why you have to roll this all into one bill and ramrod it through Parliament. ... This is unbecoming of the Conservative party to which I belonged.”2
The Budget Bill is becoming a symbol of the struggle to defend Canadian democracy. Many Conservative MPs have deep concerns about the bill. Now they face a real choice: will they allow this reckless bill to pass, or will they stand up to Harper and defend our democracy?
The decisive voting starts in Parliament this week. We need your help to create a massive public outcry, and flood Conservative MP offices with thousands of messages that call on them to defend our democracy and stop the Budget Bill.
Just 13 Conservative MPs can stop this Budget Bill, split it apart and start over, by simply telling Prime Minister Harper that they would deny him the majority of votes he needs to pass it.
These MPs are isolated in a government that keeps them in the dark and discourages them from representing our voices. We need a strong show of support for principled, honest action now to give our MPs the courage they need to stand up to Harper.
Send an urgent message direct by email to the Conservative MP constituency offices in your province, calling on them to be one of the 13 heroes we need to stop this bill.
