  1. Please remember to sign and mail your letter to your Member of Provincial Parliament asking them to protect your doctors’ conscience rights. The Call for Conscience Campaign” ends this week March 31. We are working to help doctors in Ontario not be forced to help arrange for the death of their patients. We are hoping that a simple phrase be added to Bill 84 so medical personnel will not be fined, disciplined or removed from practice if they refuse. We don’t want them to be forced to retire or move outside of Ontario. Thank you for actively joining and working for life.
