Join RNAO’s holiday card campaign to #RepealBill124

Join RNAO’s holiday card campaign to #RepealBill124

On Dec. 9, the Ontario legislature ended its fall session with Bill 124 still in place. That means Ontario’s nursing crisis will continue to deepen. Nurses will continue to leave their jobs and, in many cases, the profession. Patient safety will be impacted and the effectiveness of Ontario’s health system will continue to be compromised.

But, RNAO’s efforts to repeal Bill 124 will not rest. 

Please join the holiday card campaign. All you need to know, and all you need to participate in RNAO’s holiday card campaign, can be found online. We have designed greetings to send to MPPs who have committed to stand with nurses and repeal Bill 124. And, we have designed greetings for those MPPs who have yet to sign. Either way, we are asking you to let your MPP know how important it is to you that they #StandWithNurses and call for the repeal of Bill 124. You can find your MPP and their contact information here using your postal code.

To send your MPP a holiday card, follow these three simple steps:

  1. Check if your MPP signed the pledge. 
  2. Send a holiday card to your MPP via mail, email or social media.
  3. Share on social media and encourage others to participate and be profiled in the hall of fame gallery.

At a media conference on Dec. 14, RNAO CEO Dr. Doris Grinspun, President-Elect Claudette Holloway, RN and NurseWithSign416 co-founder Leah Waxman, and director of nursing and health policy Matthew Kellway discussed the holiday card campaign and laid out a grim scenario as Ontario’s daily COVID-19 case count continues to rise. The conference was held on the final day in RNAO’s 30-day countdown for the premier to repeal Bill 124, which was announced at the Nov. 14 rally in Toronto. 

Please also sign and share RNAO’s Action Alert to demand the premier immediately #RepealBill124.
