In a few days, Liberal MPs will have a historic opportunity to vote to prioritize basic income at their party convention.1

We're delivering your petition for a basic income at the Liberal party convention and we've plastered your ad everywhere for them to see. A flood of calls to MPs right now — while they're deciding how to vote — could be the thing that tips the scales in our favour and convinces Liberal MPs to vote in favour of a basic income that ensures everyone can meet their basic needs.

Call your MP now.
Instructions on how to call:
It’ll only take a minute, but make a big difference. It’s super easy.
  1. Read the talking points below.
  2. Enter your information to the right, including your phone number 
  3. We’ll call you back, connecting you directly to your MP's office.
  4. If you reach voicemail, leave a message on their answering machine. If you speak to office staff, just ask them to pass on your message to your MP. Make sure to tell them your name and that you live in their riding. 
  5. Make sure you mention if you’re a Liberal voter.
Talking points to include in your message:
  • At your upcoming party convention, I'm urging you to vote for 'Resolution #3375 A Canadian basic income - rethinking Canada'.
  • Basic income is a common sense solution that would ensure everyone can afford their basic needs, like putting food on the table and a safe place to call home. 
  • It would lift millions out of poverty and inject the economy with $80 billion/year. It should be a priority as we rebuild our economy. 
  • I'm urging you to vote for 'Resolution #3375 A Canadian basic income - rethinking Canada' and ensure basic income is at the top of the agenda for your party and government. As a local constituent, I will be paying attention to your vote.

 

Call your MP now!

You can use the talking points provided, but if you have a personal story about how a guaranteed livable income would benefit you or someone you know, share it with your MP.
