Protest Vic "With Us or With the Child Pornographers" Toews Today in Vancouver

Vic Toews, the guy who told Canadians they are "with the child pornographers" unless they support the government's plan to spy on the Internet habits of all citizens, will be in Greater Vancouver today. So will protesters.

Toews will be hosting a $150-a-plate Conservative fundraiser at the River Rock Casino in Richmond, B.C. and protesters are planning to greet him outside from 5:30 - 6:30 PM.

FIND OUT MORE ABOUT TODAY'S PROTEST

Vic, his buddy Prime Minister Stephen Harper, and the Conservative majority have introduced several bills that have many Canadians concerned – including C-10, which would enact mandatory minimum sentences for non-violent marijuana crimes, and C-30, which has caused the latest uproar over internet spying.

On Monday, Toews set off a virtual bomb in the House of Commons that spread like a firestorm to the internet and mainstream media. Telling Canadians they should support the Conservatives internet spying plans, he said people "can stand with us or with the child pornographers".

To add further insult to injury, Toews afterward claimed on television he didn't make the comment.

Toews behaviour and the Conservative bills have rightfully insulted and upset many Canadians, sparking protests like the one today at the River Rock.

If you live in the Vancouver area and want to tell Toews and the Conservative how you feel about their latest attempts to control, manipulate, spy-on, allow the torture of, and imprison Canadians, join us today between 5:30 - 6:30 PM (or meet up early for brainstorming and sign-making).

Find out more about today's protest on the event's Facebook Page.

The River Rock's address is 8811 River Road in Richmond. The location is easy to get to on the SkyTrain! Here's the map:

evil scum

Somebody should tell Toews hes a evil reptilian clown, he's probably a child rapist just like the rest of the government, pretty sure if we stand with you, Vic Toews, were standing with a pathetic child pornographer. We should be discussing how to lock up the evil sadistic government, not more human beings. Pretty disgusting state of affairs Canada has been taken into by Harper and his evil clown pack.

Who Watches The Watchmen?

Stephen Harper, Rob Nicholson, John Baird and Vic Toews are fascists and would turn our country into an Orwellian nightmare! They should be tarred and feathered, then banished from Canada!

CANNABIS CULTURE - It's going to be a good trip. I'm headed to Irun, Spain for Expogrow 2014 and preparing for the long flight by getting highly medicated on grinder kief: Expogrow is a marijuana and hemp trade show that takes place in the small Spanish town of Irun.

CANNABIS CULTURE - If they aren't afraid of you they just ignore you, right? That means Stephen Harper's Conservative Party must be getting nervous about Marc and Jodie Emery. What else can account for this official Conservative Party of Canada Facebook post and image?

CANNABIS DAY - The organizers of Cannabis Day need your help. Become a volunteer! Running Canada's largest Cannabis Day event and open-to-all Marijuana Farmers Market takes a lot of work, but it is also a lot of fun. Join our volunteer army and help make Cannabis Day happen! Cannabis Day has grown so much in size that we need as many volunteers as we can gather to help with vendor booth placement, stage setup and coordination, security, first-aid and grounds management.
