| Dear Friends:
| I am very pleased to inform all of you that by a vote of 51-16,
| Senate has passed bill S-18 at third reading. It is now headed
| House of Commons where it must pass 3 readings before it
| As you all know, it is a minority parliament in Ottawa these
| as a result, there could be an election at any time. This bill
| if an election is called, and we will have to start again. We
| let Members of the House of Commons know that we want this bill
| before the next election. We also need to urge all parties to
| together to pass this bill in one day.
| So I'd like each and every one of you to write an email AS SOON
| POSSIBLE, and no later than Friday afternoon to all of the
| Tony Valeri - Government House Leader - Valeri.T@...
| David Emerson - Minister of Industry - Emerson.D@...
| Jay Hill - Opposition House Leader (Conservative) -
| Stephen Harper - Leader of Opposition (Conservative) -
| Libbie Davies - NDP House Leader - Davies.L@...
| Jack Layton - NDP Leader - Layton.J@...
| Michel Gauthier - Bloc Quebecios House Leader -
| Gilles Duceppe - Bloc Quebecios Leader - Duceppe.G@...
| You should write one email to all of them collectively. You
| write a brief note in your own words.
| Every email must request that all parties get together to agree
| S-18 in one day.
| Some of the points you may want to make in the email would
| * 209 current MPs are on public record as supporting the
| of historic census records
| * Why the release of the records is important to you
| * The Information Commissioner, Privacy Commissioner,
| Statistician, National Archivist, Canada Census Campaign, and
| Historical Association all support the bill
| * Acknowledge that this is a tough time for the house
| this is a non partisan bill
| * State that you do not take any side on whether or not
| should be an election, your only concern is getting this bill
| * ALL 4 HOUSE LEADERS HAVE GOLD TICKS
| * Jack Layton, Stephen Harper and David Emerson ALL HAVE
| * Statistics Canada needs a decision on this bill right
| final preparations can be made on the 2006 Census
| If you are concerned about writing to a Bloc Quebecois member
| English, you may start your email by stating "Je suis désolé,
| n'écrit pas en Français. J'espérais que vous preniez le temps
| considerer cette lettre."
| PLEASE do not forward this email directly to parliamentarians.
It is a
| million times more effective when it comes in your own words.
| If you have EVER written a letter in support of this campaign,
| that you take this one additional step for us. THIS IS WITHOUT
| THE MOST IMPORTANT EMAIL REQUEST WE'VE EVER MADE. We need all
| deck for this one.
| PLEASE WRITE IMMEDIATELY AND MAKE SURE THAT YOUR EMAIL IS SENT
| FRIDAY IF AT ALL POSSIBLE. The House is not sitting next week
| need to keep up the momentum.
| Thank you so much for all of your help, and we hope that we can
| you one more time.
| Yours truly,
| Jeff Paul
