Canada-wide No New Fighter Jets Day of Action

Friday, October 2, 2020 at 9 AM EDT – 11:45 PM EDT
Join us for our second Canada-Wide Day of Action on October 2nd to demand that the Canadian federal government cancel the $19 billion competition for 88 new fighter jets and instead invest in a just recovery and a green new deal. This fighter jet procurement is the second most expensive procurement in Canadian history. In the running are Boeing’s Super Hornet, SAAB’s Gripen and Lockheed Martin’s F-35 fifth-generation stealth fighter. The federal government will select the winning bid in 2022 and the first combat aircraft is expected to be delivered by 2025. We have to stop the government from buying new fighter jets.
What you can do for our Canada Wide Day of Action:
*Attend a No New Fighter Jets demonstration outside your member of Parliament’s office on Friday, October
