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.

Ontario Bill 176, Walk to Work Day Act, 2017 was introduced November 14. (L-R Andrea Cameron, Pat Doherty, Peter Tabuns)

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

  1. The first Friday in May in each year is proclaimed as Walk to Work Day.


  1. This Act comes into force on the day it receives Royal Assent.

Short title

  1. The short title of this Act is the Walk to Work Day Act, 2017.

Next steps

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.
