Strategy meeting on corporate accountability - July 23

I received this email today.  I can't make it on the 23rd but hopefully some babblers will.

Subject: Briefing & lobby strategy meeting on Bill C-300 targeting
Toronto Centre, July 23th

Colleagues, comrades and friends,

This next week, on Thursday, July 23th, from 12 noon to 1:30 p.m. in the KAIROS boardroom, Catherine Coumans from Mining Watch will join us for a briefing and strategy session about Bill C-300 on Corporate Accountability for the Activities of Mining, Oil or Gas in Developing Countries in relation to the Toronto Centre federal riding of Bob Rae.  Rae has blocked this private members bill in committee.  There will be a concerted effort by activists in the Toronto Centre riding to lobby him to change his perspective and position over this summer.  When Parliament resumes in the fall, the bill will be considered again in detail, and if accepted by the majority of the committee's members, it will return to the House of Commons for the third and final reading.  If you are an activist from the Toronto Centre riding and can come on you lunch hour, or know of such an activist and can get this message to her or him to be at this meeting, that will be a real contribution.

310 Dupont Street, Suite 200, is 100 meters west of the Dupont subway stop on the north side of the street.

See you there,
