Protesting Bill C-38

Protesters wave at cars in front of Barrie MP Patrick Brown`s office Wednesday evening protesting the government`s handling of the Bill C-38, a sizable piece of legislation being debated in the House of Commons. The event, hosted by local members of Amnesty International, highlighted their concern of having so many pieces of legislation being passed through the house on a single vote.

Protesters were Brown to vote against the upcoming federal budget, which has been causing an uproar among the Opposition for cuts and amendments outlined throughout the document.

Brown is in Ottawa voting.

The protest was part of the nationwide 13 Heroes campaign to attempt to sway 13 MPs to turn down the proposed bill which may alter around 70 laws.

Brown said he supports the bill in the House of Commons and here in Barrie and said it will reflect well on the city and its residents.
