The Council of Canadians London chapter protested yesterday afternoon in support of action on the promise of electoral reform.
Chapter activist Julie Picken-Cooper says, "This was Trudeau's promise during his campaign that Canada would embrace Electoral Reform...SHAME that we have to continue protesting as he went back on his promise."
The outreach for yesterday's protest highlighted, "Please join us at Richmond and Oxford from 4:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. to let passersby know that we want Trudeau to keep his promise on electoral reform. Signs – we don’t have enough, about seven. Please make one, or more... we'll bring a heavy duty stapler if you bring the handle and cardboard sign."
We are now in the critical weeks before a vote in the House on the recommendations made by the Special Committee on Electoral Reform.
