On Saturday, July 11, Friends of Canadian Broadcasting (Comox Valley contingent) are bringing three federal parties together to work in a spirit of co-operation, manning our “We Vote CBC” booth.

Friends of Canadian Broadcasting will be set up at 4846 Headquarters Road, opposite the entrance to Vancouver Island MusicFest. The candidates will be working together, getting petitions signed and handing out or taking orders for lawn signs.

The “We Vote CBC” campaign is a national initiative designed to bring attention to the dire straits our national broadcaster finds itself in.  Invitations were sent to the four federal parties and there were positives responses from three. The Conservative party has not responded.

Attending from 1:30 – 2:30 will be:

Gord Johns – NDP Courtenay – Alberni

Glenn Sollitt – Green, Courtenay – Alberni

Peter Schwarzhoff – Liberal, North Island – Powell River

Brenda Sayers, Green, North Island- Powell River

Rachel Blaney, NDP, North Island – Powell River.
