Your help with the BCWF advocacy campaign to stop Bill C-71 is urgently needed. Our campaign is to "write early and often", and we will be providing template emails and calls to action weekly.
Specifically, I ask that you do the following:
1) Mail a letter to Minister Goodale on behalf of your Club asking him to withdraw the legislation, with copies to the Prime Minister and the Members of Parliament that serve your Club.
For your convenience,we have created a template letter for you to download, personalize and mail to Minister Goodale.
The Honourable Ralph Goodale
Minister of Public Safety
House of Commons
Ottawa, ON K1A 0A6
2) Email your letter to Ralph Goodale at firstname.lastname@example.org
3) Call/meet your local Member of Parliament and ask him/her to write to the Minister and oppose Bill C-71.
Find your MP and Book a Meeting with them to talk about why you oppose Bill C-17. It is important to meet with your MP regardless of which party he/she belongs to.
4) Ask others in your personal contact circle to help by carrying out steps 1, 2 & 3 as listed above.
This is urgent as the government has posted notice of closure on debate on the Bill and the Bill has already passed second reading.
Thank you for your support/assistance on this important issue.
