Big Pre-Election Meeting Will Give Politicians a Chance to Hear ACORN's Issues


bcmeetingOur members have been working hard planning for the Big Meeting. It is at 6:30 this Wednesday, March 20th, and will be located at Holy Trinity Cathedral – 514 Carnarvon St in New Westminster. Here is a map.

This meeting will be run by ACORN leaders from around the region and will focus on the follow issues:

• Healthy Homes: Reform the Residential Tenancy Act
• Disability Rights: Raising Disability Rates and Cutting Red Tape

• Remittance Justice: Capping Fees on Money Transfers
• Affordable Childcare: $10 per Day Public System
• Raising the Minimum Wage and Indexing it Annually

We have confirmation from key BC NDP MLAs saying that they will be at the meeting. Through our campaign actions we have talked to the BC Liberals, without getting the results we wanted, so they unfortunately probably won’t attend.

We really need to show politicians from any party that we mean business and need to have our issues and demands addressed. So you coming out is a big help!

Looking forward to seeing you there!

John Anderson
