TakeAction for January 2018: The Canadian campaign for a United Nations Parliamentary Assembly

WFM-Canada has initiated a campaign to increase Canadian parliamentary support for establishing a parliamentary assembly at the UN. A UNPA is considered a practical step toward the democratization of global governance and would be a catalyst for further UN reforms. The latest update on the international campaign is available in the latest issue of Mondial.

Prior to the 2015 federal election, 72 MPs and Senators supported the international appeal calling for establishment of a Parliamentary Assembly at the United Nations. Following the election, and turnover in the Senate, that number is now 44.

The list of current Canadian parliamentarian endorsers is available here.

Individualized letters have been sent to all MPs and Senators. Assistance is needed with contacting the offices of MPs and Senators beginning next week (January 15th).

What you can do

The most important element for a successful campaign is a strong follow-up. If you can offer even a small amount of time contacting the offices of Canadian parliamentarians over the next few weeks, please contact Maiwenn Le Brazidec at the national office.
