This Saturday, June 18, get your overalls, tool belt, and hardhat out! We’re re-installing ‘asbestos’ into your local Conservative MPs office and the Prime Minister’s home. It’s part of something we’re calling National Asbestos Delivery Day. We hope to re-install ‘asbestos’ in every riding.

What you need to participate:

  • A copy of the pledge that your MP can sign
  • Cotton batting
  • Tool belt, overalls and/or hardhat
  •  Camera
  • Bring a friend

If you’re planning on taking part, please send an email to action@canadacausescancer.ca with your riding in the subject line. You can also RSVP on Facebook and share this event with friends.

Take a photo of your delivery and email us or post it on our Facebook wall.

Send signed pledges back to pledge@canadacausescancer.com.
