Rally Pics from Nov 19th

InSite for Community Safety campaign co-ordinator, Nathan Allen is in town this week and has been organizing rallies on Parliament Hill. The first one was held in the morning of Tues, Nov 19th.

About 30 volunteers showed up over the course of the morning and assembled giant photos of current users of the InSite facility at various stages over their lives. Volunteers handed out leaflets of the same photos to MPs and civil servants as they headed to centre block for caucus meetings. Beneath the photos on the leaflets were the taglines: "Insite Saves Them. Insite Saves Lives" and "Before they were 'junkies, they were kids"

Also in attendance were Burnaby Douglas MP Bill Siksay and Vancouver East MP Libby Davies (pictured left with Nathan Allen).
