How and why: Here’s info on how to reach the Governor General so that you can express your concern about Dr. Henry Morgentaler being received into the Order of Canada.
If you are feeling keen, you could copy that letter to each of the following people who sit on the independent advisory council:
Beverly McLachlin, PC, Chief Justice of Canada, Kevin Lynch, clerk of the Privy Council and secretary to the Cabinet, Judith A. LaRocque, CVO, Deputy Minister, Canadian Heritage, Karen Kain, CC, chair, Canadian Council for the Arts, Yvan Guindon, CM, PhD, president, the Royal Society of Canada, Thomas D. Traves, chair, Association of Universities and Colleges of Canada, Patricia A. Baird, OC, OBC, professor emerita at the University of British Columbia, Daurene E. Lewis, CM principal of the Nova Scotia Community College Technology Campus, L. Jacques Menard, OC; chairman of BMO Nesbitt Burns, J.E. (Ted) Newall, OC chairman of Nova Chemicals Corp, Marie-Lucie Morin, Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Trade
Incidentally, that Globe and Mail poll never tipped in favour of Morgentaler, and was never published in the list of past polls.
Clarification: Sorry, my post is not particularly clear. We know Morgentaler has been nominated and that the Governor General’s office has a file on him. The letters are to show there is a level of concern and controversy over his nomination and that Canadians are very much divided on this issue, thereby hopefully preventing him from being received into the Order.by
