The pandemic has impacted our communication for well over a year but this hasn’t prevented Canadians from engaging on Bill C-233, a bill to prohibit sex-selective abortion. This bill, introduced at around the same time as our lives were interrupted by COVID-19, is sponsored by MP Cathay Wagantall and it is finally making its way through the House of Commons.
Canadians have signed tens of thousands of petitions, sent in hundreds of emails, and handwritten over 30,000 pink envelopes to their MPs. As evidenced by the number of MPs sharing posts and videos of all this communication, it clearly makes a difference!
Yet, with only weeks remaining before Bill C-233 is voted on, the most effective thing you can do is to arrange for a face-to-face meeting with your Member of Parliament to outline why you want them to support Ms. Wagantall’s bill. With lockdown restrictions in place, we have had great success in training people how to connect with their MP via a Zoom video call.
The power of a personal plea far outweighs any other form of communication and through our presentations we have equipped many of you to do just this. Not sure this is for you? Don’t have Zoom or even know how to go about booking a meeting? Slide through the following images which give a quick step by step guide on how to accomplish this.
We look forward to assisting you in every way we can!
