CAMPAIGN FOR CONSCIENCE RIGHTS LEGISLATION IN ONTARIO
Archbishop Damphousse encourages all the faithful to engage in a new communications campaign launched by the Bishops of Ontario in support of establishing conscience rights legislation to protect physicians, nurses and other health care workers in Ontario. Please refer to the Archbishop’s letter and the link for sending automated letters to your local MPPs.
