Folks, its time to step up to the plate and send a message!!!!
This is CFL country, and everyone needs to know it!!!
Myself, Chris Fischer and Sterling Halliday (the man behind the 'No to the Bills t-shirts') are organizing a protest of the NFL exhibition game on Thursday. Sterling is a dedicated CFL supporter, like myself, and has garnered media coverage on both sides of the border from media giants such as CBC, TSN, the National Post and local Buffalo TV station WKBW.
We will be meeting at 5:00 at Wellington and Spadina, in the parking lot next to the gas station. Its close proximity to the dome provides an ideal meeting place. After we meet, we will prepare for the protest, and go over some of the laws that must be followed. At 5:30 sharp, we will march to Blue Jays way, and likely linger on Blue Jays way, south of Front Street, to get maximum exposure from people walking to the stadium. As well, the Budweiser tailgate party is taking place on Front Street, so our there presence will certainly be felt.
We can supply you with a No to the Bills T-Shirt for the protest which must be returned after, or can be purchased for a special protest price of $15, with $5 going to Pinball's charity, the Youth Challenge Fund. Regardless of whether or not you plan on renting or purchasing a T-Shirt, it is essential that you bring a CFL Jersey, Flag, T-Shirt of any team of your choice. Our ideal objective is to have a mixture of people with CFL merchandise and Anti-Bills t-shirts. That will enable us to send the loudest message.
Please notify all your CFL loving friends so that we can have a great turnout for the protest. If you have any questions, here is some contact information.
