On Monday, August 6th, the PSAC had a float in the Gander Day Parade titled “We are ALL Affected." The float highlighted the campaign and the impacts to everyone that will result from the federal cuts to public services. There were over 1000 who watched the parade meander through town, many of whom were given our campaign materials as well as candy and water bottles as we marched past. Prime Minister Stephen Harper was in attendance (as a puppet).
Some of our members volunteered for the parade and they encouraged spectators to sign affected letters for Minister Penashue.
