Our Annual General Meeting is tonight!

After a year of unprecedented growth, join us as we prepare to hit new heights in Toronto Centre in 2014-2015!

The Toronto Centre NDP Riding Association will be holding their Annual General Meeting tonight (March 4th) at OPSEU Hall.

Agenda:
• By-Election Report
• Annual Reports of the President, Chief Financial Officers and Membership Officer
• Amendments to the Association Constitution
• Election of Officers — please refer to the proposed constitution (sent via email) for executive positions and descriptions.
• Guest speaker: Ali Chatur, the Everyday Political Citizen of the Year and the Youth Councillor for Ward 29

As you know, the Toronto Centre New Democrats have been operating as a joint federal and provincial riding association. At this meeting, we will be reconstituting ourselves as separate federal and provincial riding associations, each association with their own constitution and elected officers. This change is in order to prepare us for the new federal electoral boundaries.

Only members in good standing are eligible to vote in elections and on motions at the meeting. New memberships and membership renewals will be available at the registration desk. Registration will take place from 6:00 p.m. – 6:30 p.m. and the AGM itself will begin at 6:30 p.m.

2014-AGM

Stand up for Canadian democracy

Don’t let Stephen Harper impose voter suppression tactics and prevent Elections Canada from promoting democracy

New Conservative election laws will make it tougher for Canadians to vote – but easier for well-connected insiders to play money politics.

Sign the petition.

Under Bill C-23, Voter ID cards will no longer be accepted. This will prevent thousands of students, seniors and Aboriginal people from voting.

That’s on top of the 120,000 Canadians who had a neighbour vouch for them and who will be turned away next election.

While Conservatives are making it tougher for everyday Canadians, they’re also making it easier for well-connected insiders.

Stephen Harper’s election reforms will increase the influence of big money in politics by raising individual donations to $1500 and allowing candidates to give $5000 to their own campaign.

Let’s protect our democracy from voter suppression tactics. Let’s fight back.

Sign the petition.
