On the eve of the 2011 federal elections, 'vote' on the streets.
On this International Workers Day, May 1st, join the tens of thousands of people across North America and millions across the planet as we pour onto the streets. Workers waged and unwaged, migrants with and without status. We refuse to be silent in the face of deepening austerity, job losses, environmental destruction, imperialist wars and corporate greed.

Sounds and images from Harper's stop in St. John's, March 31, 2011.
Budgets are about choices; they reflect a government's values and priorities. With a $250 billion federal budget, the Harper Government could choose to invest in programs like universal child care or pharmacare... or spend that money on corporate tax cuts, prisons, and fighter jets.
We've created this video and a poster to help illustrate the choices between this and that. Which would you choose?

The Hill Times are speculating on ridings the Conservatives plan to target in order to get their majority.
Presumed tactics include "narrow casting" and using "wedge issues." Many of these are Liberal held, some NDP seats are on the probable list.
It looks like Keith Martin's seat is in play, I would be surprised if Wayne Easter is not safe. What about the ridings in between the West and East coasts?
