ACTION ALERT: Demand a fair and democratic lawmaking process! Send our Governor General a letter.
On November 16, 2010, Stephen Harper’s Conservative government unilaterally undermined legislation on climate change when bill C-311 was voted down by conservative senators in a surprise vote, and without any debate. This bill was previously supported by the majority of elected MPs and Canadians alike.
We must write to our Governor General, His Excellency David Johnston, and let him know that this circumvention of the democratic process is shameful!
Let's ask the Governor General to speak out in support of democracy and parliamentary traditions. Unelected senators should not be allowed to kill legislation that the majority of citizens support!
Using the form below, you can submit a letter to the Governor General. We’ve provided some sample text, but we encourage you to add to it and personalize your message for maximum effectiveness. Original letters have the greatest chance of being read by His Excellency.
