We just came back from our first sit down with a member of parliament (his assistant, actually) and it went very well. We have another meeting scheduled for this Saturday and will be scheduling 2 more.
It can seem intimidating if you've never done this before, but they're really welcoming and interested to hear our concerns with Bill S-5. Expect a casual chat and touch on the points that matter to you. Get to know them and understand their perspective, then help them understand yours. It's as easy as picking up the phone and calling to schedule a meeting. They aren't against the vape industry, but there is an information gap that we need to help fill.
If you're interested in doing the same, please start by looking up the MP in your riding today, right here:http://www.parl.gc.ca/Parliamentarians/en/members
If you need help with talking points, feel free to contact us and ask. We're more than happy to assist. Good luck!
