This organization has 500,000 Canadian members. That's not peanuts.
Avaaz is a global civic organization launched in January 2007 that promotes activism on issues such as climate change, human rights, animal rights, corruption, poverty, and conflict. Its stated mission is to "close the gap between the world we have and the world most people everywhere want". The organization operates in 15 languages, and states that it has more than nineteen million members in 194 countries. According to The Guardian: “Avaaz is only five years old, but has exploded to become the globe's largest and most powerful online activist network.”
This is not a US organization. Not sure what's wrong with it telling their Canadian members which candidate matches their aims. Didn't the NRA tell it's Canadian members how to vote?
Maybe I'm just not perturbed because it sounds like I share their goals. Now if a conservative organization that is for climate denial, anti-human rights, pro-corruption, pro-poverty and pro-conflict were to tell Canandian conservatives how to vote, I might have a problem. But then it wouldn't need to.
