Visit Your MP to Pitch PR

I committed to "environmental stewardship through social justice" after a time of finding that between us and the remedy to any environmental problem stood wage slaves.  To stop climate change we need system change and I am convinced proportional representation (PR) is our best option.  When I signed up to visit my MP to lobby for PR at http://www.fairvote.ca/mpvisit/, Fair Vote Canada (FVC) informed me:
  • Parties are already busy preparing their platforms for the 2015 election. From January 2nd to 26th, 2014, MPs are in their home ridings. Now is the time to tell them that we want votes that count - we want proportional representation.
  • The best way to influence your MP is through a face-to-face meeting. When you take the time for a personal visit, your MP knows that the concerns you express probably reflect those of thousands of their constituents. Your MP will remember these conversations better than letters, and may even bring them back to party caucus meetings on Parliament Hill.
Saskatchewan has 14 of those MPs.  Find yours here http://tinyurl.com/yourSKmp and please take advantage of this window of opportunity and arrange a visit with your MP.  It might be stepping outside your comfort zone but climate change threatens to move us all out of our comfort zones. 
Let us know if you arrange a visit and we'll update this blog.
