May 20, 2013 #PMHarperMustResign TWITTER STORM #CdnPoli #StopHarper #OccupyCanada

Greetings, concerned Canadians and global opponents to the Harper Government. We know how ridiculous and scandalous this excuse for a Government of Canada is. The most recent events concerning the Senate have only exacerbated the frustration and anger of average people everywhere. Enough of trumpeting openness and transparency while doing the exact opposite to Canadians and Canada.

On Victoria Day Monday May 20, 2013 you are invited to use this paste to draw tweets from for a twitterstorm to say that it is time for:


There is no established start time for this public sourced action. Start as early as you like on Holiday Monday. Hopefully, we will become the top trend in Canada and maybe beyond if we get enough concerned people to hit the twittersphere at once. Any individuals that wish to coordinate launch times or times of peak activity, you are encouraged to do so. Twitter is a powerful social media platform and focused action has and will have effect. Following the finest Canadian tradition, we have no firm format. The tweets below have been compiled for ease of use and easier posting for the twitterstorm. Everyone is encouraged to use them or make your own. Please remember re-tweets do not factor in when Twitter calculates trends. Only tweets of first time posting count towards the trends. As long as it has the hashtag #PMHarperMustResign it will register. Of course, copy/paste of tweets in your stream also count. Let’s make some noise!

  1. Sorry, it’s not clear to me how to do this, although I definitely do want to send Harper and his team-mates a very strong message that I have no confidence in him or his government. Guess I’m not Tweet-savy enough to figure out how to join in!

    • It’s easy peasy! :) You must have a twitter account to participate. Click on compose new tweet. Now scroll up this page and copy one of the tweets then paste it to your new tweet and click tweet! Done! That’s it! As an example: For closing search and rescue facilities to save $800K while spending $30M+ on “Economic Action Plan” ads #PMHarperMustResign

      Hope I explained it well enough! :)

  2. For beginning an ad campaign about a skills program that doesn’t even exist, and showing ads during expensive hockey series time slots, all on taxpayers’ dime,

    • I will pass on your concern! although I am sure the organizer / author of the TWITTER STORM realizes Harper won’t resign because of Twitter, but it is good for raising awareness amongst the people! much love and solidarity

  4. I just realized I jumped the gun here and posted my Twitter Storm reason for harper’s resignation!! I just noticed it starts at 12pm not 12am may 20th!! Oh well no harm done I hope!!

    • no worries, others have started across Canada aswell, another list will be available soon, and i will post it here. it is a revised list with more tweets!!

  5. Don’t forget for decimating Library and Archives Canada and working to deny Canadians access to their own cultural history
