Canada: Caring Not Killing Letter writing campaign

The Euthanasia Prevention Coalition (EPC) launched the Caring Not Killing postcard campaign to members of parliament a few weeks ago. It is important to contact elected representatives to state your opposition to euthanasia, assisted suicide and the pro-euthanasia recommendations from the report of the Special Joint Committee on Physician-Assisted Dying and the report of the Provincial Territorial Expert Advisory Group on Physician-Assisted Dying.

The Caring Not Killing postcard campaign is an easy way to activate people to contact elected representatives, but letter-writing is a more effective way to get the attention of your political leaders. Order the Caring Not Killing postcards from EPC for free.

To write an effective letter - keep your letter short and use only one or two talking points.
