How Can You Help on Motion 110
Motion 110 was unanimously passed in this House by all parties. It is now being studied by the Human Resources Committee. However, Liberal Member’s recently voted to shut down a Conservative motion to have the report and recommendations tabled prior to the winter break of the House of Commons. This essentially signals that the Liberal Government plans to take no action on Motion 110 report recommendations before the next election.
Further, every single party except the Liberal party voted for a proposed amendment to the Budget Implementation Act that would have created a new 12-week bereavement leave for parents dealing with the death of a child.
The Liberals need to know that words are simply not enough. Action is needed to support grieving parents, and it is needed now.
You can help by doing the following:
- Sign and share this petition asking the Government to take action on a 12 week bereavement leave prior to the next election.
- Sign and share this online petition.
- Emailing your Member of Parliament asking them what concrete actions they are taking to ensure that grieving parents are properly supported.
- Seek a meeting with your Member of Parliament and any Liberals Members of Parliament in your surrounding area. You can find the contact information of your Member of Parliament at this website.
