An official E-petition with the House of Commons has been set up in support of Bill C-312 and the creation of a National Cycling Strategy.
Bill C-312 is a private member’s bill that was introduced by British Columbia MP Gord Johns a little over a year ago. Basically, it would make the federal Minister of Transport responsible for developing and implementing a national cycling strategy. For more details about the proposed legislation, see my earlier posting on the subject.
These types of E-petitions are officially recognized by the House of Commons. In fact, for each 500 signatures, MP Gord Johns gets to rise in the House and ask a question to the government related to the bill and the cycling strategy. So you participation in the e-petition will make a difference in bringing attention to Bill C-312.
Participation in these e-petitions is marvelously simple. However, it is a two step process. First, you have to fill out the short form on the House of Common’s E-petition website, and then confirm your participation in the e-petition by clicking on a link in an email message that will be sent to you.
