Email Your MP
Have your voice heard. Email or call your Member of Parliament today. Or show up at a local event to hand your MP the new CBAN briefing.
Please send our briefing to your new Member of Parliament. Emailing as a constituent is an effective way to bring your MP’s attention to this important issue.
Three easy steps to send our briefing to your MP:
- Find your MP’s email address or phone number using your postal code at www.ourcommons.ca/Members/en
- Download the 2-page briefing document to attach to your email or print to hand to your MP (Click here for the briefing in French). You could also send the summary of the transparency report (Click here for the French summary).
- Send your MP an email or call to leave a message. Click here for a sample email for you to personalize. Or just use a short text like this: As your constituent, I am writing to ask you to take urgent action to ensure government safety assessments for all genetically engineered foods and plants. Health Canada has just taken the first step to exempting many new genetically engineered foods from regulation, allowing them onto the market without any government safety assessment and without notifying the government. This is unacceptable to me. I want independent science and transparency. I have attached a briefing from the Canadian Biotechnology Action Network about this issue. Please read this briefing and take action right away to ensure government oversight of food safety.
