Several days ago, at a federal Poverty Strategy Consultation session, it was reported by a Government official that that the federal government’s attention has been drawn to basic income, thanks to its many supporters and submissions during the national consultations! While this is encouraging, it also means that we need to make strong, additional efforts to ensure that basic income ultimately makes its way onto the federal agenda. We’re encouraging all basic income supporters to write to Jean-Yves Duclos, Minister of Families, Children, and Social Development, copying their Members of Parliament and Prime Minister Trudeau, expressing support of basic income. Even something short could be highly effective – and the more writers we can get, the better!
The addresses of the Minister and Prime Minister are as follows:
The Honourable Mr. Jean-Yves Duclos
Minister of Families, Children, and Social Development
The House of Commons
Ottawa, ON K1A 0A6
The Honourable Mr. Justin Trudeau
Office of the Prime Minister
80 Wellington Street, 2nd Floor
Ottawa, ON K1A 0A2
Remember that no stamp is necessary on letters to representatives in the federal government! Let’s show the government just how many people are behind this movement!
