Five federal candidates from three different parties, came together in a spirit of cooperation on Saturday afternoon, July 11th, to stand behind the campaign initiated by Friends of Canadian Broadcasting in support of our national broadcaster.

All candidates from the four federal parties with seats in the House of Commons were invited to participate.
The local volunteers for Friends of Canadian Broadcasting wish to sincerely thank these stalwart citizens for coming out in less than ideal weather to help further the cause of restoring our national broadcaster and for demonstrating that cooperation among politicians is indeed possible. (Also for allowing us to stay dry while they went out on the street in the rain.)
