National Days of Action: Thu 24 & Fri 25th November, 2011

Canadians are standing together against a fill-the-prisons approach to justice that has failed everywhere it’s been tried.

Join a coalition of groups for two days of action to speak out against the cruel Crime Bill. Time is running out to make Canada safer, not meaner - we need you to help us all make a big impact.
Where: Our MP’s local constituency offices.
When: Focus on Thursday at 1pm, with actions throughout Thursday and Friday.
We’re going to tell our MPs: Don’t mess up like Texas. Stop the cruel Crime Bill.
Bring friends, and bring a cowboy hat if you can. 
We will deliver tens of thousand of petition signatures and a summary of the Canadian Bar Association’s powerful argument against the bill.
Our goal is to show cross-country solidarity by reaching as many MP’s offices as possible, you and a friend are all we need to send a powerful message.

Why oppose the cruel Crime Bill?

The Omnibus Crime Bill is a massive combination of bills, all of which failed to pass when the Conservatives had a minority of seats in Parliament. When combined, the Crime Bill rejects proven crime prevention and rehabilitation strategies, and instead imposes mandatory sentences that will create hardened criminals, target the most vulnerable in our society, and force prison expansions that will cost our provinces dearly.
