When groups of people band together on a common cause, then change can happen, albeit slowly but it does happen. Look at Bill 139, a change has happened, temp workers have won their right to severance or termination pay, just like any other worker.

Our political process needs to have more public consultation, what I mean by that is that the people need to have more opportunities to voice their views in front of the policy makers.

All voices must be given equal weight and I think it is important the other groups stand in support of a group advocating for a change that may not be necessarily an issue that is their concern. Solidarity, the number of bodies is important, it is not hard to ignore say 10 people but it is another to ignore say 10,000.
