Petition to amend abduction legislation

Letters to the Editor

In the spirit of recent events concerning the matter of a small child on Wednesday the 7th of September 2011 in the South East Kootenay region of British Columbia, I have generated a petition to lobby the federal government to amend current child abduction legislation. My close friend and Conservative MP David Wilks has the opportunity to introduce a private members bill September 29th of this month. In order for him to bring the motion forward we need 7000 signatures. I have been using social media to circulate the petition.

If you could help by getting 30 signatures I would appreciate the support. The only stipulation is that the petition be accompanied by the front matter, the petition signed is on paper 8.5 by 11 inches long, the names are printed and then signed, and I or you can submit the originals. If you could please get these petitions signed it would greatly impact our chances of success in pushing this bill through. Currently child sexual exploitation bills and child sex crimes are on the table. That is why I do not include the language in this petition. If you are a work colleague please get them to me as soon as possible. I am currently teaching at Matthew Halton school. If you are a friend please drop them off at my home 1277 Pinyon Road Sparwood BC V0B 2G2.

If this is too much of an inconvenience I understand fully and apologize in advance for the imposition. This matter is time sensitive. Thanks for all of your support and please feel free to forward this to as many people as possible or locate the petitions at community centers, public libraries, etc. Also, please feel free to hand deliver them to your local Conservative Party MP. It’s time for change. This child was abducted one block from my home

Thanks so much guys this means so much to my wife and I.

Jill MacIntyre
