Take Action on Conflict Minerals NOW

Write a letter this week to your MP telling them to support Bill C-486 to go forward.  Sample letter on our Action Page

Research has shown there is a direct correlation between places where there is a rich supply of minerals, a weak and corrupt government, and unconscionable violence against women, social disruption, and coersion toward child and slave labour.  These rare minerals, mined in this culture of on-going violence, are what we are using to make our phones, tablets, and computers work.  Canadian Companies are often implicated in this violence.  We need higher standards for company behaviour in other countries.  Bill C-486 provides a framework for setting these higher standards.
