Ottawa (27 April 2011) – As Canadians prepare to cast their ballots on May 2nd for the candidate of their choice, activists with the All Together Now! campaign want to help them make an informed choice.
Concerned that there has been too much rhetoric and not enough substance on issues around tax fairness and public services, campaign supporters have organized a series of panels and forums across the country.
On the evening of April 28th, 6:30 – 7:30 pm (Eastern time) a national interactive forum is being held online.
The forum is being hosted by Ottawa Citizen journalist Susan Riley and guest economist David Macdonald from the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives.
“The Prime Minister has severely limited the number of questions he'll answer from the media and the public,” said James Clancy, national president of the 340,000-member National Union of Public and General Employees (NUPGE).
“Our members, and Canadians in general, want to hear answers to their questions and concerns. They're looking for a real discussion of issues like tax fairness and public services.”
