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