Ruth Meta says:

Meena Wong … NDP Vancouver South and I are arranging this little meeting on Thursday with the Conservative MP in Vancouver south… wanna come along? email me:

Along with the Old Age Security issue, we might as well ask her why Diane Findlay is dismantling EI, I’m giving the representative a taste of the cake we’re delivering to the rest of the Conservatives in Ottawa!

Syd Ryan, president of Federation of Labours Ontario, is organizing this event with local activists across the nation. I have been asked to take part. I will be there with friends.

Date and Time: Thursday, Feb. 9th at 10 am
Location: Wai Young, Conservative MP for Vancouver South, Constituency Office: 6406 Victoria Drive, Vancouver, BC V5P 3X7

Please spread the word to your friends and neighbours and come out to this event to fight against Harper Conservatives plan to raise the OAS from age 65 to 67. Bring your voice and make signs.

Many people will have to work 2 more years in order to be able to retire. I think the Conservatives should cancel the 39 Billion fighter jets and more billions on mega prisons to balance the budget.

Vancouver came out to remember Jack Layton and to pay their last respects one of Canada’s greatest politicians!

John Gilbert “Jack” Layton, PC (July 18, 1950 – August 22, 2011) was a Canadian social democratic politician and the Leader of the Official Opposition. He was the leader of the New Democratic Party from 2003 to 2011, and previously sat on Toronto City Council, serving at times during that period as acting mayor and deputy mayor of Toronto. He was the Member of Parliament for the constituency of Toronto—Danforth from 2004 until his death.

Below are videos and photos from the Candlelight Vigil and Memorial at the Vancouver Art Gallery

Come out and celebrate the momentum of this historic New Democrat campaign.

We’ve never been closer to the Canada we want. One where families come first, and no one is left behind.

Together, we can do this.
