All nationalities welcome to sign and comment if you want. Senate is back debating this week. Need 160 more signatures.

Rally tomorrow at Charles Clark Square at 10 AM in downtown Windsor (adjacent to Caesars Windsor). Should be local, provincial, and national coverage. Brian Masse (NDP Windsor West) will speak.

How did the rally go? Any concrete outcomes that could push this bill back into debate?

It would appear that the committee meetings on June 12 and June 13 only discussed bill c-51. It also appears they are set to discuss same on June 18 as well. Did c-290 get pushed to the fall sitting? Did they discuss this at the rally?

Last discussion I heard about was a couple weeks ago. A Liberal senator from Halifax spoke in favor of passage. We just gotta hope they set a vote this week.

Next opportunity won't be til mid-October when the later-than-usual summer recess is finally over and Parliament sits again. Brian Masse thinks there may be enough votes then to pass it.

Very interesting case here, as the Senate is dragging it's feet on this (going into year 2 now...) 2 things I see from that:

1) They're trying to minimize the damage to their friends IF they pass the Bill (their organized crime buddies will need a new source of income).
2) We have a serious citizens' advocacy issue in this country when it comes to getting Bills passed, and what WE, as the people, want.
