This Saturday will mark 51 days remaining in the election period.

Hot off the heels of a major rally in Brantford this week Marc Laferriere and his team will take part in a cross-country launch this Saturday of a new campaign to remind voters that as Prime Minister, Tom Mulcair will repeal Bill C-51.

Contrasting NDP values and principles with those who supported Bill C-51, Laferriere and grassroots volunteers will go door-to-door to outline the various aspects of this issue.

As Marc said during a recent rally with Tom Mulcair in Brantford:

“It is a failure of leadership to say that you oppose Bill C-51 and then support it, only because you are afraid Stephen Harper will criticize you for it.”

“When civil liberties are being threatened – that is not the time to retreat – that’s precisely the time to stand your ground and take on Stephen Harper. ”

“And unlike some – New Democrats are not afraid to stand up to Stephen Harper and win.”
