Dear Mr. Martin:
Re: Mr. Vallecott's Motion M-483
I note your name hasn't shown up, as yet, as a seconder to Mr. Vallecott's motion M-483 with respect to equal parenting as follows: —
That, in the opinion of the House, the government should propose amendments to the Divorce Act so that law and practice ensure due process protection of rights and equality of parents, and to ensure that children benefit from equal parenting from both their mother and their father, after separation or divorce.
To do so, I believe you are already aware, it simply involves submitting a signed letter to the Journals Branch at the House of Commons at 140 North, Centre Block, which states:
""Please put my name down as Jointly Seconding Motion M-483." Once done it only takes one or two days for your name to appear on the list. You would do us proud to support this motion and I will watch with interest to see how it unfolds. If you have reservations can we meet to discuss them?
- Do you support Equal Parenting in principle?
- If not willing to second, will you vote in support of M-483?
- If you are undecided or uncertain, what additional information would you like?
- If you are opposed, on what grounds?
