No Taxation without Representation!

January 23rd, join Canadians Against Proroguing Parliament and protest the undemocratic move to "suspend democracy and Parliament".

Keep an eye on the official event details for updates.

Canadians Against Proroguing Parliament - Rally!
Let's stand up together and make our voices heard-Parliament should resume on January 25th 2010 with or without Harper!

Specific details for each city to follow soon, we are just coordinating details at the moment with various volunteers across the country. Generally speaking protests in major cities will be held at government legislative buildings, in smaller cities locations will be announced well in advance of the protest.

I hate to break this to you, but our government can't raise taxes or spend money without a majority of votes in the House of Commons, and if they lose one of those votes, they lose the government. Democracy doesn't get any better than that.
