Add your voice to Bill C-31 (the Act to Protect Canada’s Refugee Determination System)

WE HAVE 8 DAYS TO STOP THE PASSING OF BILL C-31 AT SECOND READING!

Dear all,

We have just published a new set of ‘Myths and Facts’ related to Bill C-31: http://ccrweb.ca/en/myths-and-facts-c31.

Please share this with your Member of Parliament and with members of the general public (especially at meetings that you may be organizing). They need to know why this new legislation is bad for refugees and bad for Canadian communities.

In addition, we’ve created additional social media resources to incorporate these myths and facts. To check out these new model tweets and for more information on how to get involved on social media, see: http://ccrweb.ca/en/social-media-c31

For resources to help you contact your Member of Parliament with your concerns on Bill C-31, and to encourage others to do the same: http://ccrweb.ca/en/write-your-member-parliament

If you have already contacted your local Member of Parliament with your concerns, please contact MPs on the Parliamentary Standing Committee on Citizenship and Immigration near you:  http://ccrweb.ca/files/cimm2012.xls

(They will be studying Bill C-31 after the bill passes the present second reading in the House of Commons).

The main page for Bill C-31 on the CCR’s website, with links to all of the resources above, is: http://ccrweb.ca/en/refugee-reform

Of course, if you have any questions or comments, please let us know. I can be reached at: cfrench@ccrweb.ca
