Communiqué #1 - Resolutions

Lynn Jones, Provincial Chairperson of Resolutions

July 2022

    

“The day the power of love overrules the love of power, the world will know peace.” – Mahatma Gandhi 

  

New Chairpersons: 

  

As I am new to this position I went on the National website and found some helpful tools, I am sharing them below.   

  

Resolution Review: 

This communique will focus on Human Trafficking. 

 

Pope Francis refers to human trafficking as a “modern day slavery” and it is the fastest growing crime in the world.  While Resolution 2012.01 Criminalization of the Purchasing of Sexual Services has been achieved there is still much work to be done in having our new law The Protection of Communities and Exploited Persons Act enforced and we have two active resolutions.   

  

What you can do: 

  • You can keep up to date with the review and watch the witnesses speaking to the law at: https://www.ourcommons.ca/Committees/en/JUST/StudyActivity?studyActivityId=11490221  
  • You can write to the Justice Minister, David Lametti, letting him know that you support the retention of the law and its enforcement across Canada.  
  • You can contact your Member of Parliament and let them know that you support this law and wish to see it maintained and enforced.  

 

If you need a quick and easy way to contact politicians, you can use Defend Dignity’s templates to contact the Justice Committee, your MP and the Justice Minister. You can let them know you want to save the “Protection of Communities and Exploited Persons Act” by using the tools available at https://defenddignity.ca/pcepa/  

 

Current Resolution:  

Indian Head Council presented the resolution of Child Labour in Mining Mica to the Regina Diocesan Council who in turn presented this resolution to the Provincial Council. It was approved it to go forward to the National Convention in August. Please do not hesitate to reach out to me if you would like further information on this matter.
