Petition Your Legislators
April 28, 2011 permalink
A website lets you easily send emails to Ontario MPPs Laurel Broten, Sylvia Jones, Michael Prue and Rosario Marchese giving your opinion of recent private member's bills 179 and 183. The text of the email and a non-commital reply from Sylvia Jones are enclosed.
Hon Laurel C. Broten, MPP:
I'm pleading with you to stop Bill 179. I fear that this bill was conceived without enough public consultation. Prior to passing this bill, we urge that you look into the matter yourself to guarantee that there will be no adoption of any children who are or maybe wrongfully apprehended in order to prevent children from being stripped of good parents, extended family and their friends.
Furthermore, I am writing to you asking for your support of Private Member’s Bill 183. The purpose of this Bill is to protect Ontarian's and I want you and your party to commit to expanding the Ombudsman’s mandate to have the ability to investigate those public bodies listed.

Thank you for your email about Bill 179. I absolutely believe there needs to be more public consultation on this bill. During debate of this bill I have been calling for public input, and I look forward to being a part of that process.
In regards to Bill 183, the Progressive Conservative Caucus supports bringing more accountability to the agencies, boards and commissions which are publicly funded.
Sylvia Jones, MPP
