Toronto Chapter at Pride festivities
Jul 5, 2011
FVC Toronto chapter hosted a table at Toronto Pride community fair on Sunday. The chapter has had a table for most of the past 6 or 7 years. This year was exceptional because we did not have to explain as much what we meant by voting system reform or proportional representation. In fact at times the 8 volunteers had four clipboards on the go collecting 599 signatures on the Declaration of Voter's Rights. At one point we ran out of Declarations and had to run to a local convenience store to run off 20 more sheets!
Pride is an exceptional event -- it draws Canadians from all parts of the country so the reach is not just the city. To see more info and pictures check out www.facebook.com/fairvotetoronto
It is immensely gratifying when people thank you for what you are doing. We remind then that joining might be an option, but if not, telling friends, family and most of all their local politicians that we need some form of PR.
