Dear Ms. Block,

Thank you for sponsoring Bill C-230, An Act to amend the Criminal Code (intimidation of health care professionals), also known as the Protection of Freedom of Conscience Act.

You have the full support of our organization, which launched in 2018. The group formed in response to the Carter decision, when it became clear that our ill, vulnerable patients were increasingly at risk as medically induced death was promoted and normalized in Canada. We are affiliated with an international group of Catholic nurses known as CICIAMS.

We will encourage our members to write to you individually and to sign any petition that you recommend on this topic. Please let us know any other ways that we might help you as Bill C-230 progresses in the legislative process.

Thank you for your active involvement in this important issue.

Helen McGee,
RN MN President,
