ACORN members traveled to Parliament on March 29 to support Finance Critic, Peter Julian MP, as he tabled ACORN's petitions for fair banking in Parliament. Our Fair Banking / End Predatory Lending campaign calls upon the federal government to provide access to fair financial services for low and moderate income Canadians. MP Sheila Malcolmson also presented our petitions. Our campaign has also received support from the Liberals, despite Finance Minister Bill Morneau refusing to present our petitions. Liberal MP Julie Dabrusin recently tabled our petitions in the House. See MP Sheila Malcolmson presenting our petitions here, MP Julie Dabrusin here and MP Peter Julian here.
ACORN members also released a video highlighting the devastating impact of predatory lending. Three members have shared their debt story to raise awareness of predatory lending. Watch the video below:
