Campaign #9 - Conflict of Interest and Ethics Violations
In accepting the position of Vice Chair of the Canadian Firearms Advisory Committee, Ms Provost signed terms of reference agreeing not to lobby government in areas related to firearms. Ten months later, in her capacity as a spokesperson for PolySeSouvient, she sent a detailed letter to Members of Parliament and Public Safety Canada asking for specific gun control measures to be legislated. Four months after that the Minister of Public Safety introduced bill C-71 in the House of Commons, a bill that contains five of PolySeSouvient's requests and uses passages from the letter as justification. Campaign 9 is addressed to the Lobbying Commissioner as well members of the media. It aims to expose this conflict of interest and ethical violations.
In the past OneClearVoice.ca had been a letter writing platform with several letter options. While varied letters and written letters are still important, this time round OneClearVoice.ca is going to run focused campaigns. There will be one letter per campaign and it will be email only. The purpose is to send a rapid flood of unified emails that will be attention getting in order to show our numbers and our resolve.
How It Works
You provide your postal code so that your MP can be determined. The campaign email will then be addressed to the Prime Minister, the Public Safety Minister, your MP and the Chief of Staff to the PM Gerald Butts. Add your signature information and the email is ready to send. It needs to be sent by you (and not our server) so when you click the send button your default email application will open. You will then have the opportunity to make any edits to the email before your click send in your email application. Once you've sent the email go back to your browser and share via Twitter or Facebook if you are so inclined. Click the blue Take Action button above to get started!
This website does not record any information you provide. While you are asked for your postal code (to look up your MP), your name and location, none of this information is retained on OneClearVoice.ca's server.
About One Clear Voice
One Clear Voice is an independent project created to help Canada's vast gun community, their friends and family, easily communicate with their government. Specifically it is a tool to voice our collective concern over bad law that addresses a non-existent problem and fails to address the tougher problem of gangs, criminals and their misuse of firearms.
OneClearVoice.ca was created and is wholly owned and operated by myself, Doug McComber. I've been a licensed gun owner, starting with an FAC, since 1989. I belong to several gun rights organizations and participate in popular Canadian gun forums (you might know me as Doug_M). Being a developer by trade I thought why not create something to bring us all together to help raise our collective voice. And so here we are! I want to thank everyone who has participated and to those who have shared One Clear Voice all over the 'net.
