Bill C-377 Returns to Parliament. Take action!

After the vote amending Bill C-377 in the Senate, the Canadian Labour Congress hoped that the government would at least give pause and think about the implications of legislation that was poorly written, discriminatory and unconstitutional.

However, it appears that notwithstanding the message from the Senate and the report and
recommendations of the Banking, Trade and Commerce Committee, which heard from many witnesses opposed to the bill, the government is still prepared to push the bill through Parliament.

We are asking you to call the Senators listed below and urge them to carefully consider the purpose of  the bill, its discriminatory and unconstitutional nature and vote to defeat Bill C-377.
