This Wednesday at about 5:30pm Eastern time, our Members of Parliament will vote on Paul Dewar’s Conflict Minerals Act. If you haven’t already, please sign our online petition telling Canada’s MPs to support the bill.

If you can spare the time, please also email your local MP today to support the bill. In situations like these, it’s more important to email your MP than the Prime Minister’s Office. You can find your MP online using your postal code. If you need help for what to say, we have a suggested text on the STAND Canada website.

Once you’re finished, tune-in! The vote will be carried live at CPAC.ca. Let your friends the world know that you’re watching by taking to Facebook and Twitter. When using Twitter, use the hashtags #cdnpoli and #turnoffconflict.
