Cross-Canada ‘Equal Parenting after Divorce’ Crusade
202-812 12th Street, New Westminster, BC V3M 4K1
Cross Canada Crusade to Support ‘Equal Parenting after Divorce’
Maurice Vellacott, M.P Saskatoon-Wanuskewin has tabled a Private Members Motion (PMM-483) which proposes changes to the Federal Divorce Act to enshrine ‘the principle of Equal Parenting After Divorce’.
Fathers 4 Justice Canada (F4J Canada) has supported such legislative changes since 1998 and believes that such change is long over-due. To educate and gather popular support from fellow Canadians for this important legislative action, F4J Canada will be launching a cross-country tour with the support and assistance from local groups. We invite all concerned Canadians to join with us and make their support known and visible in spreading the message that “the time has come to act”.
F4J Canada’s Everyday Superheroes Teamwill begin their crusade in Vancouver, BC on August 18, with a kick-off planned for August 17. The heroes plan on visiting major cities across the nation – from British Columbia to Newfoundland – during August and September. Their final destination is our Nation’s Capital. They plan on arriving in Ottawa ON on or before October 7, to coincide with the earliest date that the Honorable Maurice Vellacott M.P may present PMM-483 in the House of Commons.
Final plans are still being made, but at this stage we would like to ask your organization to help us in spreading the word about the F4J Canada Everyday Superheroes Team arrival in your town/city. Please see attached our CURRENT TENTATIVE Schedule with local contacts. Each local group may have additional event plans.
Of course all donations towards this momentous event are gratefully accepted!
