#KillBillC69 is making waves in the Senate. Yep Suits and Boots made it into the Senate on Tuesday

I thought you’d like to know that the work you are doing to help #KillBillC69 is making waves in the Senate. Yep – Suits and Boots made it into the Senate on Tuesday.

Here’s how. Senator Grant Mitchell, who is sponsoring the Bill on behalf of the government, stood in the Senate two days ago to introduce the Bill and take questions.

One of the questions came from Senator Pamela Wallin. Here is what she asked:

“We have all been getting, as I’m sure you can attest, hundreds of emails. Many questions have been raised about this piece of legislation, but I would like your comments on the following two:

“The concern is that there is added discretionary power for the Minister of the Environment enshrined in this bill. The current incumbent, of course, is not predisposed and is often hostile to traditional oil and gas or fossil fuel projects. Giving that ministry essentially a veto does not bode well. Can you comment?

The second issue raised repeatedly – and people are just asking for information – is that projects will be scrutinized according to ‘the intersection of sex and gender with other identity factors’. I believe that’s a quote. What on earth does that mean?"

Well, we know where the emails have come from, right? Courtesy of you and the other 2,300 Suits and Boots supporters who have joined our campaign since September 10th.

And Senator Wallin’s questions look familiar – see #2 and #3 on our Ten Reasons to Kill Bill C69: https://suitsandboots.ca/10-reasons-to-kill-bill-c-69-in-canadas-senate/

But in case you had any doubt that your efforts aren’t being noticed, Senator Mitchell quickly put that to rest. Here is part of his reply to Senator Wallin:

“Regarding ‘intersection of sex and gender,’ I’m not sure about the wording. If you read it, I think you got it from a document that has been sent around. I would like to go through that. We will be sending you information. Every one of the 10 points in that document are wrong. They are misinformed. I will argue that in each case.”

We know what document Senator Mitchell is referring to, don’t we? And it would indeed be great to see his information refuting our Ten Points, wouldn’t it?

So, here’s an idea. Senator Mitchell was on our call list on Day One of our campaign, when we had 300 supporters. Today we have nearly eight times that number.

What if we all made one extra call today – just before calling the three Senators below – to Senator Mitchell’s office, and ask him to detail his responses to our Ten Points? Or, simply tell him again, in case he missed it the first time, to simply #KillBillC69?

Here, then, is Senator Mitchell’s contact info again, as well as today’s rotation of Senators to call in our campaign:
