Call for Action on Bill C-250

Monday, July 26 2010

As you may know, Bill C-250 passed the Senate Legal and Constitutional Affairs Committee last week and is now back to the Senate for third and final reading. The only problem is there is likely less time before the election call than it would normally take to pass it. The only way it's going to pass the Senate and become law (short of a delay in the election call) is if the leaders of the Senate make it a priority.

There may be as little as a week left, so please voice your support as soon as you can.

Please contact the following Senator leaders and/or the Minister of Justice (who has stated he wants the Senate to pass the bill). If you're not sure what to say, here are a few points to make:
