Provincial Chairpersons of Legislation

National Executive (for information)
From:
Janet McLean, National Chairperson of Legislation

The House of Commons is recessed this week (April 25th-29th) so your federal members of parliament may be in their riding offices. I urge you to take this opportunity to visit them and let them know your concerns regarding Bill C-14 An Act to Amend the Criminal Codeā€¦(medical assistance in dying). Conscience protection for physicians, health care workers and their facilities must be clearly guaranteed in Bill C-14. This crucial issue cannot be left to be dealt with by medical associations or provinces. Make sure your member of parliament knows how you feel. Use the website for the Coalition for HealthCARE and Conscience (www.canadiansforconscience.ca) for help sending e-mails and writing letters. We should all act NOW. It is a matter of life and death.

Your sister in the League,
Janet McLean
