Sign our Charter’s 30th anniversary card

Posted by Bob Rae on April 3, 2012 | No Comments

This is a special moment. It’s not every day that we celebrate our Charter’s 30th anniversary – and get to surprise Jean Chrétien with a giant anniversary card.

April 17 marks the Charter of Rights and Freedoms’ 30th anniversary. And we Liberals want to give it a proper celebration with a giant card containing thousands of signatures from Canadians from coast to coast to coast.

Please click here to literally sign your name on a card that we will surprise Jean Chrétien with at our April 17 Charter Celebration Rally in Toronto.

It was thirty years ago that a passionate and determined Liberal Minister of Justice named Jean Chrétien, working alongside Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau, enshrined in the Charter our most cherished Canadian values.

Since then, our Charter has made Canada the envy of the world. Its promise of fairness, justice and opportunity is a beacon of hope that has drawn millions of new Canadians to our shores.

This is your opportunity to sign your name to a giant anniversary card for our Charter of Rights and Freedoms that will be given to our former Prime Minister and my dear friend Jean Chrétien.

Please sign the card – and be part of the surprise:

After you’ve signed, please share this email with all those you know who cherish our Charter.

Thank you.

Bob Rae
