Bring Your Own Sign
Give your inner child free reign to create your very own sign!
If you’ve got kids, get them involved ~ make it a family art project. Use Bristol Board or just ordinary cardboard.
Keep it Simple : One Idea per sign (although you can have another on the back of a double sided sign)
Black and white, primary colours
Big easy to read letters
Not everyone feels they are artistic, so if you’re feeling inspired, if you make extras, no doubt there will be folks happy to carry them.
If you are looking for inspiration, you might get some ideas from the graphics in my PR For Canada or ERRE Flickr Albums.
Sign the Petition
Whether or not you can make it out on Saturday, you can sign the record breaking (85552 signatures as of writing) House of Commons e-616 ePetition here. You don’t need to set up an account to sign, but you will need to confirm in email before it counts. As I understand it this one was started by a Waterloo gent.
There is still time for the Canadian Government to adopt electoral reform in time for 2019.
That’s would still be the BEST possible outcome for Canadians.
And it just *might* happen if we make enough noise now.
(If not, we can get to work on making sure the next government does.)
