URGENT ACTION – Let your MP know that you want a Voice for Justice

On Wednesday, October 1st, Bill C-584 or An Act respecting the Corporate Social Responsibility Inherent in the Activities of Canadian Extractive Corporations in Developing Countries will be voted on as part of its second reading in the House of Commons. This act proposes the creation of an independent ombudsman in Canada, a call that has been made by Development and Peace since 2007 in response to reports that communities affected by Canadian mining companies have not had their rights respected.
