Email template (copy and paste):
My name is ---- and I am a resident of town, province and I am writing because I believe that the institution of the Emergency Act in response to current events is not only a case of government overreach but that it also sets a dangerous precedent of authoritarian government in a democratic nation.
Additionally, the Emergency Act has been invoked without any significant effort by the Prime Minister to peacefully negotiate and de-escalate the current protests and convoys. I believe that there is a peaceful, compromise-based solution to the protests that are going on and I would like to see the Senate stand up and say no to the violence and the government overreach that the Emergency Act would enable.
I can be reached at: phone number
If you have Twitter, find your Senator on Twitter and tweet @ them, with a brief statement about the Emergency Act.
@senator --I am asking for a veto of the Emergency Act, on the grounds that it permits unnecessary government overreach and is being invoked without negotiation being tried as a first means to resolve current events.
Be respectful and precise with how you express yourself. Dignity is key.
