What are you doing on Canada Day? Relaxing? Celebrating? Working? Whether you’re at home or elsewhere, July 1 is the day to seriously reflect on the state of democracy across the country. Unlike corporate media when Canada Day rolls around we aren’t flashing images of fireworks and flags in front of your eyes. Instead we reflect your values and talk about your issues.

In June we launched the #WIN2015 campaign. From now until the end of July, progressives are being asked to support by donating directly to rabble’s pre-election strategy. The three-pronged campaign involves funding a get-out-the-vote initiative, an election fact-checking site, and providing the resources to have daily news roundups and columns from well-known journalists, including rabble’s own award-winning Parliamentary correspondent Karl Nerenberg.

Thanks to our supporters, reaches over half a million readers each month. That puts us in a decisive position to make a big difference in the next election. And we need to make a big difference! The federal conservatives have proved time and time again that they will stop at nothing to cling to power. Whether it’s voter suppression tactics, unprecedented violations of civil liberties, or dubious fundraising, the next election will require progressives to help build a victory like never before.

This Canada Day you can help build a Harper-free Canada and a Harper-free Canada is a happy Canada.
