Defeating Bill C-36 in Canada’s Senate is still a work in progress and needs YOUR active participation

Here’s the latest news on the Bill C-36 front, from an email we received today:

Canada's Senate chamber

THIS IS IT. WE NEED YOU TO STAY INVOLVED.

WE KNOW WE’RE ASKING A LOT BUT THE STAKES ARE HIGH.

With Bill C-36 going into another day of third reading December 13, we are making a difference.

If you haven’t worked with us, please make the time to work with us today. NHPPA leads by creating awareness and launching initiatives; but the difference is made by you.

We’ve updated our ‘Shawn to Senate’ campaign 3 times and have seen our collective work quoted in Senate Committee since we began asking for due process and what’s right on November 24/10.

Now, it’s time to think about the consequences of being restricted from having a voice.

CLICK HERE to see how those responsible for the betrayal of your legal and constitutional rights need to be held to account.

The NHPPA’s accountability campaign includes, not only a new send to media and the senators standing between Canadians and democracy; but a new message to Prime Minister Harper, to Health Minister Aglukkaq, and to select bureaucrats at Health Canada who will be affected by passing Bill C-36.

HOW MUCH PERSONAL EFFORT IS THIS FREEDOM WORTH TO YOU, TODAY?

Please schedule 30-40 minutes out of your day, preferably this morning, to read through NHPPA’s accountability campaign and participate in an act that will be referred to as the ‘will of the people’.

CLICK HERE TO JOIN NHPPA’S ACCOUNTABILITY CAMPAIGN.

LET OUR GOVERNMENT KNOW WE’RE HERE; AND WE’RE NOT GOING AWAY.

Please forward this message to anyone you know who wants to make a change.

    Bill C-36 is bad, I learned this from the Bill C-6 days. Please contact your senators by e-mail or telephone or written letter and urge them to vote against this. It limits YOUR rights. If it passes, in 10 years you will look back on this and say “how couldn’t I just spend 10 minutes to write an e-mail?”

    BILL C-36 ERODES YOUR RIGHTS.

    From Senator Elaine McCoy:
    “Take Bill C-6, for example [C-6 is from parliament’s second session, the precursor to Bill C-36 of the third session]. Under the guise of protecting Canadians from harmful consumer products, the government wants to expand its network of inspectors and equip them with criminal and quasi-criminal powers that far exceed what even food and drug inspectors enjoy these days. Surely we don’t require such totalitarian tactics to address consumer safety issues, important as they are. Indeed, lessons learned from the Listeriosis tragedy would suggest that we do not. Sheila Weatherill, who independently reviewed the federal government’s failed response mechanisms in the face of a serious breach of safe meat processing practices in Canada, issued 57 detailed recommendations to improve future performance. Not one of them called for increased legislative powers. Instead, she specifically stated that sufficient authority already exists for government officials to take effective action. If only they would … and that seems to be the real issue, time and time again. ”

    FYI – Health Canada is recruiting 35 Senior Compliance Officer and 10 Product Safety Officer… even before the bill is passed.

    Maybe we can start applying those positions? Open to Canadian Residents with citizenship/permanent residency/work permit.
