In Canada’s last Parliament, 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 less than 40. A UNPA is considered a practical step toward the democratization of global governance and would be a catalyst for further UN reforms.
WFM – Canada has initiated a campaign to increase Canadian parliamentary support for the establishing a parliamentary assembly at the UN. Individualized letters have been sent to all MPs & Senators. Following a reminder email at month’s end we hope to begin the follow-up — contacting MP offices. WFMC members and supporters are asked to help with this campaign. If you could dedicate some time to help with the follow-up advocacy (emailing or telephoning MP offices), please contact Fergus Watt or Blake MacLeod.
