Ontario Walk to Work Day Act Private Member’s Bill 176
MPP Peter Tabuns invited me to attend when he introduced Bill 176, Walk to Work Day Act, 2017 with a First Reading on November 14.
My sister Andrea Cameron came with me. We were welcomed warmly by Mr. Tabuns, who posed for this photograph with us afterwards.
The text of the bill
An Act to proclaim Walk to Work Day
Her Majesty, by and with the advice and consent of the Legislative Assembly of the Province of Ontario, enacts as follows:
Walk to Work Day
- The first Friday in May in each year is proclaimed as Walk to Work Day.
- This Act comes into force on the day it receives Royal Assent.
- The short title of this Act is the Walk to Work Day Act, 2017.
Now, the bill needs to pass through a few more stages in order to receive Royal Assent. It is by no means a sure thing. The best way to make sure it gets there is to educate MPPs about the merits of a Walk to Work Day in Ontario so that the bill is supported.
So, I wrote a letter.
Then, I sent it electronically to all Province of Ontario MPPs.
Please feel free to use any or all of my letter if it helps you with yours.
Write to make a difference!
Your messages will increase the odds of an Ontario Walk to Work Day becoming a reality.
Thanks for your support.
