Cuba: Into the Future

A reminder of our upcoming event

Cuba: Into the Future

Throughout the 23 years of Victoria Friends of Cuba’s existence, Victorians have shown great interest and understanding towards Cuba. Many Victorians have joined us in such campaigns as ending the Injustices in the illegal US blockade of Cuba and the US occupation of Guantanamo Bay.

Cuba/US relations have been restored and President Obama recently visited Cuba. What does all this mean? You are invited to our upcoming event to find out.

Share these new PR MythBusters!


Ranked ballot

As the Liberals get set to announce their all-party committee consultation process, proportional representation will soon be back in the news.

The new Liberal government has promised to “make every vote count” in 2019.

We can expect opponents to begin recycling the same tired myths against voter equality in an effort to mislead Canadians about electoral reform.

To combat these myths, Fair Vote Canada has produced a series of Myth Busting Blogs and social media posters which we encourage you to share far and wide! Here are the latest three:

Ranked Ballots are not a Voting System

How Will Anything Get Done?

Is Proportional Representation Constitutional?

Blood Money

NationBuilder r1

Dear Paov -- 

A thousand people have already sent messages asking Health Minister Terry Lake to ban the sale of blood and plasma and protect our voluntary blood system.

Last week, Minister Lake said he sees no problem with Canadian Plasma Resources -the same company that was kicked out of Ontario after opening a pay-for-plasma clinic near a homeless shelter and drug treatment centre- setting up shop in B.C.

Can you email Minister Lake now calling for a ban on the sale of blood and plasma in B.C.?

We need to make sure Minister Lake hears loud and clear that the public does not want for-profit blood collection in our province -- before CPR can set up clinics in B.C.
