Sample Letter

Alberta supports Canada's stance on the Iraq War, Mr. Klein Friday,
March 24, 2003
 
Dear Mr. Klein,

We understand from media reports that you support this Bush/Blair war against the Iraqi people. We understand that you plan to table a motion of support on Monday in the provincial legislature. We are appalled.

You do not have the support of the citizens of Alberta for any such measure and your seats in parliament do not give you the right to speak on behalf of Albertans on such a tense ethical dilemma. We, therefore, request that you respect our wishes and ratify Canada's decision to stay out of this illegal war rather than subverting the beliefs of your constituents.

The Canada we are proud to live in was built on "peace, order and good government." Please re-think your support of Bush's illegal war.

The People of Alberta.
