HERE IS YOUR LETTER-WRITING TOOLKIT!
We need to send a clear and consistent message that we are not going to stop until our right to access natural products is protected. This cannot be done with a single letter sent once. We need you to act weekly, or at least bi- weekly in sending both a letter and the full Discussion Paper.
Look Up Your MP’s Constituency Address
It is important to send a letter to your MP at both their House of Commons address and their Constituency Office. You can find their Constituency Office here: House of Commons Current Members of Parliament
CHOOSE FROM THREE LETTERS ADDRESSED TO YOUR MP DETAILING THE NHP REGULATION CRISIS
This is a letter that you draft yourself. We have compiled a guide to help you write an effective letter, and have also compiled a list of two dozen potential writing points that you can use as inspiration.
This letter is almost done for you. It is the same form letter as above, with a blank text box for you to add your own hand-written personal commentary. Your effort to draft personalized comments results in more impact on your MP.
This letter is completely done for you. All you need to do is add your MP’s name, sign and date the form letter. This requires the least time investment, but form letters also have the least impact at the MP’s office.

DO ALL FORMS OF THE LEVELS OF COMMUNICATION OUTLINED ABOVE.
The idea is for your communications to make clear that you are passionate about the issue. So passionate that you are communicating on such a scale that Health Canada bureaucrats and staff have never experienced this before.
Do all the levels of communication over and over again. At least weekly.
