Stop Harper Tee-Shirt

Laura Repo, Kingi Carpenter, & Chris Parsons

A T-shirt project for 2015 Canadian Election inspired by Senate Page Brigette DePape who held up her “Stop Harper” sign during the Speech from the Throne in 2011. A Chris Parsons Design and collaboration with Laura Repo and Kingi Carpenter.

Brigette DePape is a Canadian activist from Winnipeg, Manitoba who came to Canadian national attention on June 3, 2011. While a participant in the Canadian Senate Page Program in 2011, DePape stood in protest during the Throne Speech in the Senate, silently holding up a sign that said “Stop Harper!” This action led to her prompt dismissal, for breaching the non-partisan nature of the page position and disrupting the Governor General in Parliament. In a subsequent interview, DePape explained that she disagreed with Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s policies. A few days after her protest in the Senate chamber, Michael Moore offered DePape a job. DePape stated that she had also received job offers from the Public Service Alliance of Canada (PSAC) and the Council of Canadians, where she is currently working.
