National Day Of Action – January 23rd

No Prorogue

National Day Of Action

Just committed to joining others at one of the official Canadians Against Proroguing Parliament rallies taking place across Canada this coming Saturday. My wife and I will be attending the…

Calgarians Against Proroguing Parliament Rally

In this regard, I placed the following comment on the above blog…

“Come on Calgarians, if my wife and I can do the 2-1/2 hour drive there and back from the Crowsnest Pass to attend, I’m sure more of you can too!”

My ‘protest sign’ message to Harper…
“You may be the Prime Minister
But I’m your Boss… Get back to work!”

 

Our Country

 

This will be my first ever ‘protest rally’. I feel like a hippy… I’m back in the Sixties again! ‘Grey Power’!!… Ya gotta love it!!! :-)

Any other brave souls from the Crowsnest wanting to voice their concerns about prorogation and wanting to work towards making a better Canada, can get involved (nonpartisan). Those willing to become a politically engaged Canadian who exercises their democratic right to stand up for democracy, outside Mr. Harper’s office, can contact me at 403-564-4518. The rest of you will do well to remember…

“In Germany they came first for the Communists, and I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a Communist. Then they came for the Jews, and I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a Jew. Then they came for the trade unionists, and I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a trade unionist. Then they came for Catholics, and I didn’t speak up because I was a Protestant. Then they came for me, and by that time no one was left to speak up.”

 

We are learned in self-doubt, scholars of our very failures, geniuses at excuse and tomorrowing our resolves. And so we become practiced in powerless resolution until hope gets undone and dies in the unattempted.

    I came across a website, electionnightincanada.com, with some banners and useful resources targetted at educating people about the essential issue re. Harper & democracy, that goes beyond prorogation & Saturday rallies.

    Thanks for this Eugene and for the useful resources. I’ve included a banner here on my blog as well. :-)

  3. Go Grace: That’s right…Who’s the boss? ? WE ARE THE BOSS ! YOU ARE THE BOSS, SIR ! I salute !!!

    DEAR MR. PRINCE, I COMMEND YOU & YOUR WIFE TO KEEP UP THE GREAT WORK. “THERE IS A REASON FOR: YOU & YOUR WIFE MUST BE THE ONE TO MOVE FIRST IN THIS ACTION. BECAUSE YOU BOTH ARE LEADERS”. SO, 2.5 HRS DRIVE IS A GREAT START, ALTHOUGH IT MAY BE ONLY SMALL ONE OF THIS BIG IMPORT PARTS IN THIS MOMENT. WHO SAID: MAKING THE PRIME MINISTER TO GO BACK TO WORK IS AN EASY JOB? YOU ARE THE GREATEST, MY CANADIAN PRINCE.

    Thank you ladies! This Prorogation by Harper is what tyrants do, to stifle democracy and dissent. How appropriate with Martin Luther King day, yesterday, to quote this great man:

    “Lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.”
    – Martin Luther King Jr. …
