UPDATE: May 19 | Added MP Cheryl Gallant’s petition to fire Public Safety Minister Bill Blair.
UPDATE: May 9 | Added petition for UNIFOR Members against the union using their member dues to promote gun bans from honest people.
If you read The Bill C-71 Book, you already know what I think about petitions, so the obvious question becomes …
“Christopher, why are you urging me and everyone I know to sign these two petitions?”
We have an opportunity to give our political allies the ability to keep the stupidity of the Liberal government’s latest round of gun bans in the public’s eye. Why is this important? Politicians need tools to do their jobs, and one of the tools at their disposal are petitions. I hate petitions because, far too often, they give the person signing them the false impression they’ve actually accomplished something when they have not. Signing a petition is not an end. It’s not even a beginning. The value of a petition is to give our elected officials – in this case our Conservative MPs – the ability to keep raising the issue both inside and outside of Parliament. The flaws in the Liberal government’s latest Order in Council are many. As more and more of these flaws surface, a petition gives our MPs the ability to speak about those failings – which can only help our cause. So… here are the links. Please go to them both, sign your name and, MOST IMPORTANTLY, click the confirmation email you will receive immediately afterward. If you do not, your name will NOT be added to the list.
- Petition e-2574 (Democratic process)
- Petition e-2576 (Democratic process)
- Matt Larose’s petition on Change.org [h/t @AnnieOak5]
- Canadian Taxpayer’s Federation petition
- UNIFOR Members Only on Change.org
- MP Cheryl Gallant’s Petition To Fire Bill Blair
Sign them, click on the confirmation link in the two emails you will receive, then ask all your family and friends to do the same. Will these petitions in and of themselves stop the latest Liberal nonsense? No, of course not. They are simply one more tool in our arsenal to fight back against measures we know will not and cannot stop gang shootings or mass killers.
