Calgarians protest federal budget bill

A handful of protesters showed up at Prime Minister Stephen Harper's Calgary office on Saturday to protest the federal government's omnibus budget bill.

A handful of protesters showed up at Prime Minister Stephen Harper's Calgary office on Saturday to protest the federal government's omnibus budget bill.

Rally spokesman Jim Picken says there are many changes in Bill C-38 that people aren't aware of. He claims that some Conservatives MPs feel the same way.

"We've been told there are a fair number of Conservative backbenchers who are not on board with their own government's bill or the way it's been put together," Picken said.

Picken said the bill contains more than 70 different laws ranging from measures that would roll back Canadians' environmental protection to changes that would weaken the national social safety net.
