Whether you’re an opera star or sing like you can crack a mirror you can take part in a Canada wide singalong of the Harperman song today in Guelph and tomorrow night in Kitchener.

34 communities have planned rallies to sing the Harperman song today. It was written by Ottawa area folk singer Tony Turner. The tune went viral when someone in the Conservative party tried to take it off YouTube.

12 noon at St. George’s Square in Guelph will be the site of Thursday’s local event.

Sharon Somerville with the group vote together has organized a sing along for Friday night at 6 in Kitchener.

She says the song and the event is “basically a protest against the record of the Harper government and the attitude of the government toward Canadians. And the direction the Harper government is taking us.”

Guelph singer James Gordon, who has written a musical about Stephen Harper tells 570 News “it’s a fun event that makes a statement at the same time.”

Organizers say it’s a way to return fun to this year’s federal election campaign.
