Support Canada’s right to protest

Whether you are for or against the Northern Gateway Pipeline or don’t care either way

Whether you are for or against the Northern Gateway Pipeline or don’t care either way, lets all at least be unanimous in our right to demonstrate.

I am calling on all of you who care about democracy, about our constitution and Charter of Rights, and are able to come to the hearings at the Delta Ocean Point, to send a strong message to the Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency that demonstrating is our right, and we do not need their permission.

This hearings are no doubt a facade anyway the government probably already determined what it will do. The very company that wants to build the pipeline, Enbridge, make huge contributions to both the B.C. Liberals and B.C. NDP.

Stephen Harper has demonstrated once again he is will to manipulate and smear those who disagree by calling anyone against the pipeline anti-prosperity.

Oh we send our fighter jets to Italy to enforce a no-fly zone over Libya so people can demonstrate there, but the heck with the right to demonstrate here.

Why should we have to go to some African country for our government to support our right to protest?

If you or someone related to you are veterans or are in the service you ought to come out and stand up for democracy.
