If you’re concerned with the legislation, we suggest taking these actions to make your voice heard.
Email Members of Parliament
The most significant influencers at this point are current Liberal MPs. Frustration is mounting among them as they are concerned the legislation will threaten their future re-election.
If you’re in a Liberal riding, send an email to your MP and cc: our Prime Minister and the Minister of Finance, Bill Morneau.
If your riding is not represented by a Liberal MP, then send an email to Liberal MPs in your city or ridings near you. In these cases, get to know the MP who does represent your riding by copying them on your email. Contact info for MP’s can be found here.

On behalf of the 20,000+ FBC members, Steven Ibbotson, General Manager, will be sending a letter to MPs in every city and province we service, and the Prime Minister and Minister of Finance, communicating this legislation will be costly to our country and to all the hard-working business owners like you who fuel the Canadian economy.
