The Victoria Peace Coalition, Vancouver Island Peace Council, and committed activists were out today in Victoria to support demonstrations in Ottawa and demonstrate, locally, our opposition to the CANSEC weapons fair.
On a sunny day, with the BC Legislature as a backdrop, passers by took our leaflet, stopped to chat and to discuss CANSEC. With many tourists around, it was an opportunity to talk to folks from the USA and elsewhere around the world.
In BC, as in Ottawa, the message was loud and clear: Arms dealers Not Welcome in Canada! End CANSEC!
