Final push for Bill 32
Based on feedback from MPPs, we are focusing our Bill 32 campaign on the Premier.

So we’ve set up a NEW sample letter putting our case to Dalton McGuinty alone. It’s important that he hear the message from far and wide in the province, so get your friends and family involved.
