KAIROS Urgent Action Alert: Bill C-584

Screen Shot 2014-09-29 at 8.02.05 PM

The next five days are crucial in the Open for Justice campaign to win greater accountability from the Canadian mining, oil and gas industry.

Please contact your Member of Parliament today.  (Even if you have already written to your MP on this matter, please contact them again regarding a very important vote in the House of Commons on Wednesday.)

Yesterday in the House of Commons, MPs debated the Extractive Sector Ombudsman Bill (C-584) to create a new accountability mechanism for companies operating abroad.  KAIROS Canada is asking all MPs to support the bill at its upcoming vote for second reading.  Bill C-584 is our best hope of legislative change for mining justice in this session of Parliament. 

Contact your Member of Parliament today.

It’s easy!
And it takes less than two minutes if you use the online action tool on the KAIROS Canada website:

www.kairoscanada.org/openforjustice

Please join the over 90,000 Canadians who have already called for Canada to be Open for Justice.

Thanks again for your support.

Sincerely,

Ian Thomson
KAIROS Partnerships Coordinator, Resources and Rights
