Nathan Cullen’s “Keep Your Promise” Tour — Wednesday, 29 March 2017

Natan CullenHello Fair Voting Friends,

Last Thursday Nathan Cullen, NDP critic for Democratic Institutions presented Petition E-616 in support of electoral reform to Parliament. With over 130,000 signatures, E-616 is Canada’s largest e-petition to date. In this excerpt from a press conference held after the presentation, Nathan’s intelligence, conviction and passion for democracy is striking. It is well worth the time.

From an e-mail sent by Anita Nickerson, Fair Vote Canada’s Chapter Co-ordinator:

Hi everyone! Nathan Cullen’s Keep the Promise tour started on Saturday. Fair Vote Canada will be promoting all the stops.

I hope Liberal MPs do show up somewhere but even if they don’t (these are NDP events) it’s an opportunity for people to come together on this issue and get motivated to do things such as send letters, make visits to the MP and be visible in the ridings. We need to push the Liberals to vote yes in May OR encourage those who support PR to find some other way to come back to the table. Equally important in case we don’t change Liberal minds – we need to connect people in advance of 2019.

We can’t assume other groups will promote these so please do your best to share with your networks.

FVC is allowed to have tables at all the stops! Here are the list of stops so far below this email. We have TO, Kitchener and Guelph covered. If you are in one of the other places, please get in touch with me off list if you can have a table for us and tell me what, if anything, you need. (I’ll be emailing you soon otherwise 🙂

We really need to build Fair Vote Canada and this tour is one way to do it.
So please have the clipboards with Declarations and invite people to sign!
The ridings Cullen is targeting will include those we especially need to grow in for 2019 to elect pro-PR MPs.

Other awesome things to have on your table: Tabloids. (I only have one box left, not sure if Kelly has more). Postcards to Trudeau (that Kelly is mailing out to those who asked for them or use a different one with the same idea). Also, check out “photos” on our facebook page for things you might like to print for a display.

Thanks so much for helping make the best of this opportunity!
