Since election day (September 20th or sooner at the advance polls) will soon be upon us, I want to share with you some important information on your Liberal Member of Parliament (M.P.) who is up for re-election.
Your Liberal MP Filomena Tassi voted IN FAVOUR of the anti-family Bill C6, even though she received countless emails and phone calls from supporters urging them to vote the right way.
Bill C6, the so-called “conversion therapy ban” bill was one of the most concerning pieces of Legislation the Trudeau-led Liberal government passed in the House of Commons this year. Simply put, this Bill sought to punish and jail parents for up to 5 years if they sought therapy for their child for either gender or sexual concerns.
Your MP, along with all the Liberals, the NDP, the Greens and the Bloq Quebecois—and even 57 Conservative MPs–including Erin O’Toole— voted in favour of the bill too!
The good news? The election was called before the Bill passed the Senate, and is now dead.
But that doesn’t mean it won’t come up again.
This is why it is important for you to vote for a candidate who will support the family, and who does not support Bill C6.
Please ask ALL the candidates running if they support Bill C6. Do not vote for any candidate or M.P. who does.
Send a message on election day; vote for the family!
