Contact Members of Parliament and Senators concerning Bill C-14.

Alex Schadenberg
Executive Director - Euthanasia Prevention Coalition

The two votes on May 4 in the House of Commons on the euthanasia Bill C-14, one to close debate and one to send the bill to committee do not change anything. 

The 235 to 75 vote to send Bill C-14 to committee was disappointing, but only procedural. The 165 to 140 vote to close debate on Bill C-14 was undemocratic but not surprising considering the Supreme Court imposition of June 6 to pass legislation on euthanasia and assisted suicide.

EPC is impressed by Robert Falcon Ouellette (Liberal MP - Winnipeg Centre) who has strongly opposed Bill C-14 (Link to his CBC interview with Ouellette).

The fact is, achieving political movement requires all of our supporters to send letters to Members of Parliament and Senators. We also ask you to attend our rally on Wednesday June 1 on parliament hill (12 noon to 1:30 pm).

EPC urges you, to write to Canadian Senators, especially the members of the Senate Committee on Legal and Constitutional Affairs with your concerns about Bill C-14.

EPC also urges you to contact the members of parliament on the House of Commons Committee on Justice and Human Rights, with your concerns about Bill C-14.
