“STOP HARPER” It does not need to be any clearer than this – Stephen Harper and his Conservative Government need to be stopped.
The Halifax Dartmouth & District Labour Council is committed to doing just that and our newest
campaign is our STOP HARPER Bracelets, which people are proudly wearing from British Columbia to Newfoundland.
Stephen Harper and his Conservative government continue to show time and time again that they are not for the people of this country, but are a definite friend to big business.
We have seen this with the cuts he has made to social programs, abolishing the gun registry, his blatant attacks on unions in Bill C-377, his disregard to First Nations and Aboriginal Peoples, the devastating changes to Employment Insurance in Bill C-45 and the desire to privatize health care
instead of investing in the 2014 Health Accord that benefits all of us. These are only some of the attacks he is making and we know there will be much more to come.
Harper needs to be stopped now and we need to ensure that there is not another Conservative Harper Majority in 2015. Help us in this fight; Get bracelets for yourself, your family, friends, and Sisters and Brothers and show your commitment to stopping Harper. They are free but we would appreciate a donation of a Toonie as we will be able to do that much more. Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org and we can arrange for pick up or delivery.
We have created a Tumblr account (www.stopharper.tumblr.com) where you can post your pictures of where you are proudly wearing your STOP HARPER Bracelets and you can send us your pictures to post on our website (www.HalifaxLabour.ca), Facebook Page (www.facebook.com/HalifaxLabour) and Twitter account (@HalifaxLabour) and we will be able to spread this message even further.
“The People United Will Never Be Defeated” – It is time for us to unite across this country, take Canada back and STOP HARPER.
Kelly Murphy, Executive
Vice President Halifax-Dartmouth & District Labour Council
