Now there is a chance to do something positive about this injustice. The federal government promised reform and appointed an Expert Panel to hear from Canadians. In 2016, over 20,000 people sent letters urging the federal government to reform our laws to protect Canadians' right to be heard through the charities they support. Hundreds of organizations also participated in the consultation and made detailed submissions – including West Coast Environmental Law (through our sister organization, https://cl.S7.exct.net/?qs=a062fedffd5ca304489dbdbd2bf812da4cad679562530c3e409c87fb756685975798953d01b2bab3c9b86acda0c1e1ede0b0aa314b2a2600 the West Coast Environmental Law Research Foundation ). In March 2017, the Expert Panel submitted its final recommendations to the Minister of National Revenue. Its report contained a clear call to action: fix the broken system. However, to date the federal government... has done nothing to implement the Expert Panel’s recommendations. We have heard that a decision may be made in the next 7 days. We need to raise our voices to make it clear to the government that we want them to fix our broken charity laws now. https://cl.S7.exct.net/?qs=a062fedffd5ca3040307ebf85174f2102c729b0b9c76700e99eca76f19fe57c57671fa6b32ca01521fc645a02f40f52c508807b0c746676c Will you send a letter to the Prime Minister today? Tell him to follow through on his commitment to amend the Income Tax Act to enable charities’ work for systemic change to improve the lives of Canadians. We will make sure that your Member of Parliament receives your letter as well, so that they can help ensure the right decision is made. https://cl.S7.exct.net/?qs=a062fedffd5ca3040307ebf85174f2102c729b0b9c76700e99eca76f19fe57c57671fa6b32ca01521fc645a02f40f52c508807b0c746676c Send a letter now!
