This upcoming Monday our Members of Parliament are going back to Ottawa. Below are a few issues that we are watching as they return.
Please join us in keeping our leaders in prayer, these issues in prayer and in being a voice to our leaders on these issues.
C-75 REDUCING SENTENCES ON SERIOUS CRIMES
Debate and voting on Bill C-75 is expected to take place soon after MP’s return on Monday. If passed, C-75 will soften the penalties for certain serious crimes such as participation in a terrorist activity, abduction of a minor, profiting of of the trafficking of a person, assaulting a member of the clergy and much more.
Please click here for more in depth explanation of C-75.
Please consider writing your MP asking them to vote against C-75 unless the serious crimes are taken out. It doesn’t take many letters and phone calls to get serious traction.
Together we can make a difference.

NOMINATIONS FOR FEDERAL ELECTION
All across Canada nomination campaigns for the 2019 federal election. Who wins these campaigns will determine who will be running in the next federal election.
With talk of a potential snap election looming, many of these campaigns are coming to a head.
Pray for those with godly vision and character to win nominations and ultimately win seats in the House of Commons in 2019.

According to The Honourable Michelle Rempel, Shadow Minister for Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship “Justin Trudeau has…chosen to set up a permanent hotel program to deal with the influx of illegal border crossers.” With the murder of Marissa Shen by a Syrian refugee, the tensions between Ontario & Ottawa surrounding immigration and the thousands who have entered Canada at non-official check points, this topic continues to be a volatile one.
Please continue to keep this issue for our nation in prayer. It is expected to be a focus for the 2019 federal election.
TRADE AND TARIFFS
Canada has had new tariffs that affect trade with the USA. Economists are saying that if tariffs are placed on the auto industry Canada may not recover economically. NAFTA dealings are tense with auto tariffs and supply management for dairy being debated.
Let’s join in prayer for the protection of the Canadian economy. Auto Tariff discussion on The Financial Post Please also keep the on-going pipeline deliberations in prayer.
