Bill C-38 is causing a lot of discussion lately, whether it be among environmentalists, unions, politicians, or citizens. Everyone has something to say, or an opinion on the subject. Individuals from across Canada are gathering to work together, despite their differences.

            In New Brunswick, people and groups worried about the changes that the “budget” will bring to environmental regulations are gathering in Fredericton tomorrow, June 14th. The gathering will take place at the office of the Minister of Fisheries and Oceans, at 11am. There will be a press release during which individuals will speak about the impacts of Bill C-38 on marine life and public safety.

            Today, elsewhere in the province, citizens are mobilizing to try to convince their conservative Members of Parliament to vote against bill C-38. Gatherings will take place in Bathurst, Moncton, St Stephen, Hampton, Saint John, Fredericton, Edmundston, Grand Falls and Miramichi.

This protest will also be happening across the country, in order to convince 13 conservative MPs to vote against bill C-38 to stop it from being implemented.

    I feel so bad I was too late, missed the train and couldn't find the MP's office. I wasn't the only one, though...
