Don't Take Away Freedom of Expression and Peaceful Assembly

Background on the Issue
On May 29, 2017, MPP Yasir Naqvi, the previous Attorney General of Ontario, announced that he would table a bill in the fall to transform public sidewalks into “No Free Speech Zones” outside every abortion facility in the province. The bill was passed in October later that year, and has been put into force since February 1, 2018.

These bubble zones within which pro-life speech and expression are banned, prevent pro-lifers from demonstrating or counselling within a certain radius of an abortion facility where children are killed by abortion. That includes hospitals and clinics where abortions are committed, and pharmacies are now able to apply as well. These bubble zones are expected to resemble British Columbia's and Newfoundland and Labrador’s, which have bubble zone laws “not exceeding 50 metres” around abortion facilities.

Hello M.P.P [Recipient's name will be automatically inserted],

You’re my elected representative for the riding of [Recipient's riding name will be automatically inserted]. As such, I am asking you to represent my opinions and my request, at Queen’s Park.

On February 1, 2018, Ontario’s previous Attorney General introduced a bill which would create bubble zones around abortion facilities. In the meantime, they were supposedly consulting “health care, legal and advocacy groups to develop details of the new law.” Of course, these consultants would all be pro-abortion advocacy groups and no dissenting opinions will be invited.

I do not want any bubble zone around abortion facilities. I think they’re unjust and unreasonable infringements on freedom of expression in Canada. Whatever one thinks about abortion, one should not be seeking to stop the opposing side from voicing their opinions about it.

I ask that you do your best to revoke the bubble zone law, so that the government is held accountable for their infringement on our rights and the public is made aware of this injustice.
