September 15th National Day of Action report and photos

On Saturday, September 15the PSAC members across the country demonstrated their support for public services and talked about how federal cuts are affecting all Canadians. Here in BC we hosted events in Vancouver, Surrey, Abbotsford, Victoria, Nanaimo, Campbell River, Prince George, and Naramata. Members hosted booths, rallied for public services, spoke to members of their community, and heard from local politicians across the province.

In addition to the events on the 15th, a group of protesters, including PSAC REVP Bob Jackson, Jim Sinclair, President of the BC Federation of Labour, and Dave Clark, RVP for the Union of Canadian Transportation Employees, staged a 24-hour sit-in protest at the Kitsilano Coast Guard Station, after the federal government ignored a report saying lives would be lost if the station is closed as planned.

A poll commissioned by PSAC BC shows that a large majority of British Columbians, Conservative voters included, are opposed to federal government cuts - read the media release here.
