Dear [MEMBERNAME], I write to express my deep concern over the government’s decision to revise its application requirements for the 2018 Canada Summer Jobs program, forcing all applicants to indicate support for a clause that promotes values that I cannot in good conscience support in order to be considered. Many faith-based charities that offer programs like summer camps for disadvantaged kids, outreach to youth, aid to refugees, and assistance to the homeless are being denied funding. The Charter protects citizens from government discrimination, explicitly protecting the freedoms of belief, conscience, thought, and religion. These rights must be respected and affirmed in legislation, regulations, and policy. Intolerance is wrong. I urge you to stand up for conscience rights and reverse this unfair and discriminating requirement. Sincerely,
