Bill C-59 Goes to a Parliamentary Committee

REMINDER: Join Our Campaign to Help Defeat the Infringing Provisions of C-59

As Bill C-59 reaches the parliamentary committee stage, we remind you to join our letter-writing campaign to federal MPs and Senators if you haven't done so yet.

You will recall that on May 21st,  AJC President, Len MacKay, wrote to federal MPs and Senators, seeking their support to rescind Division 20 of Bill C-59 on the basis that it violates Canadians' constitutionally protected right to collectively bargain.  

Bill C-59 will go to the House of Commons Standing Committee on Finance, next week, and several federal union representatives will be testifying.  Len will be present to lend his support.  

LET'S KEEP UP THE PRESSURE. THE AJC NEEDS YOU!  Please show your support by downloading and sending the attached letter to your MP and your Senator by province.  

You can also write directly to the following MPs who are members of the House of Commons Standing Committee on Finance.

When sending the attached letter, we ask that you copy so that we can gauge the level of membership and public support.  

Together, we are the AJC and must stand together to ensure that government respects and promotes the protection of Canadians' Charter rights.
