SAMPLE LETTER for letter writing campaign to federal government

The Hon. Chuck Strahl
Minister of Indian and Northern Affairs
Government of Canada
Ottawa, ON K1A 0H4
Canada

Dear Mr. Strahl;

I am writing to urge you to act swiftly accomplish what previous federal governments have all failed to do by immediately convening good-faith negotiations with the Lubicon Nation towards a settlement of Lubicon land rights.

As you may know, failure to negotiate a fair settlement of Lubicon land rights has led to condemnation from the United Nations Human Rights Committee, Amnesty International and the World Council of Churches, amongst others. It’s time to set this right.

A resolution of this long-outstanding, internationally-recognized issue is possible within a short time frame and would be a notable achievement for your government in its initial term.

Please give urgency and priority to settlement of Lubicon land rights and send negotiators to the Lubicon negotiating table with a mandate to negotiate all outstanding Lubicon settlement issues in good faith.

Sincerely,
