Urge senators to send Bill C-262 to Committee


This Thursday, the Bill is supposed to be sent to committee for review. Please urge senators to be in the Red Chamber on Thursday to vote in favour of this important step.

Time is of the essence.

STEP ONE – Please visit KAIROS’ e-letter page: https://secure.kairoscanada.org/node/13

STEP TWO – Replace the current letter with the following text:

Dear Senators,

I’m writing today in the name of reconciliation and Indigenous rights recognition in Canada.

I am sure you have been following the progress of C-262: An Act to ensure that the laws of Canada are in harmony with the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples.

This Thursday, the Senate will vote to send the Bill to committee, nearly a year after it entered the Senate.

We need your help to ensure respect for Indigenous rights and to advance reconciliation in Canada, as called for by the Truth and Reconciliation Commission.

I’m urging you to do whatever possible this Thursday to be present in the Senate and vote ‘Yes’ to advance this important Bill to be studied by the standing committee.

I look forward to watching the crucial vote Thursday evening.

Respectfully yours,

 

STEP THREE – Replace the current subject with: Please send Bill C-262 to Committee

STEP FOUR – Fill in your contact details and press send. All senators will receive your message.

Time is ticking on Bill C-262. It can afford no more delays. Your messages to senators are critical.

With thanks,

The KAIROS team
