We need 13 Conservative MPs to "Be a Hero and Stop the Budget Bill."

We are having a rally at Colin Mayes office on Wednesday. I know you've heard about PM Harper's so called "Budget"  Bill C-38 that intends to kill environmental regulations that protect wild fish and fish habitat. This Federal Budget Bill makes changes to over 70 laws. It has drawn criticism across the political spectrum, including former Conservative cabinet ministers and members of PM Harper's own caucus.

The NDP held town hall meetings across Canada on Bill 38 which intends sweeping changes that were never mentioned in the Conservative's election platform. These changes will gut environmental protections, hollow out our economy and damage society. We need 13 Conservative MPs to "Be a Hero and Stop the Budget Bill."

This Wednesday, June 13th @ 5:30PM our time (while MPs gather in Ottawa for a decisive showdown in Parliament) Canadians will be holding rallys across Canada calling for 13 "hero" Conservative MPs to work together and stop the Bill, split it, and start over.
