CBC Pride in Oakville

Our Oakville volunteers sporting new Friends of Canadian Broadcasting campaign shirts that leave no doubt: We Choose Canada, We Choose CBC.

National We Choose sign launch in Kelowna

The very first We Choose campaign lawn signs were planted on Cadder Ave. in Kelowna on March 12.  These signs will now begin to blossom like crocus in spring in swing ridings across the country!

Urge Ottawa to commit to funding CBC so it can fight misinformation and tell great Canadian stories from our communities.

Oakville campaign launch

The Oakville Museum was the site of FRIENDS campaign 2019 launch event on March 7, as it was before the last federal election.  A crowd of enthusiastic supporters gathered to remember the power of the 2015 grassroots campaign FRIENDS sponsored in Oakville, and to plan for this year’s effort.
