Wow! He lasted 11 hours

The Conservatives want to ram through a bill (The Unfair Election Act) is only advantageous to them, and they are doing everything they can to keep Canadians in the dark. That's why the NDP is doing everything it can to bring public and media attention to this important issue.  We will soon launch public consultations across Canada.

Tuesday, the NDP’s Dave Christopherson did what we call, in political jargon, a “filibuster”.  A filibuster is a procedural obstruction tactic.  Dave talked for 11 HOURS (!!) in Committee to prevent the adoption of Bill C-23.

You can watch the first part of the 11 hours here (or a few minutes, if you prefer :)):



You can also thank Dave here:

Bill C- 23 provides, among other things, an increase in the donations ceiling,from $ 1200 to $ 1500. The Conservatives want, with this measure, to maintain their fundraising advantage by allowing the wealthiest Canadians to give more money. We should not let them.

In opposition to the conservatives who represent big businesses, the NDP wants to fight for the interests of real people.  Help us fight this odious Bill  -- one that will increase the influence of big money in politics -- by donating $5 or more.
