Wes speaks at C-51 Day of Action in Vancouver

Having written two widely read articles on the threats of Bill C-51 to our civil liberties, and particularly to Canadians who care about the environment and First Nations rights, I was honoured to be invited to speak at the National Day of Action against Bill C-51 in Vancouver.

Though I have participated in many demonstrations against things like illegal and unjust wars, government inaction on climate change, unsustainable salmon farming practices and solidarity with the student demonstrations in Quebec, I had never spoken at a rally this large before. Across the country tens of thousands of concerned citizens are standing up for democracy and our rights, a testament to how much the Harper Government has underestimated the intelligence and the courage of Canadians in my opinion!
