Ottawa Rally to Prioritize Family Sponsorship
Time & Location
About the Event
What? Rally to #prioritizefamilysponsorship
When? September 19, 1pm to 3pm
Where? Ottawa, Parliament Hill
Who? Anybody affected by spousal sponsorship, including your family and friends. This is a peaceful rally, children are welcome. We will purposely invite the police to monitor our rally.
Why? Despite our thousands of letters, despite our rallies across Canada on August 8, despite our House of Commons petition with 6000 signatures, the Canadian government has yet to provide any solutions to expedite family reunification. Children continue to grow up without one of their parents. Spouses continue to live with loneliness, stress and anxiety. Things need to change, it's time to reunite families now.
How? Wear our group t-shirt or wear red. Red represents both our country and our love for our spouses and families.
Wear a mask and socially distance AT ALL TIMES. This rally is not a debate about masks or about COVID-19. Wearing a mask and socially distancing is the rule and that's that.
Bring banners with polite and catchy slogans. Nothing rude, threatening, offensive, libelous, or violent. Remember we are expecting kids, this is a family event. Be creative, be artistic!
