If you would like to coordinate a drop-off of petition signatures at your MPP’s constituency office, please contact us at info@ahuscanada.org and we will be pleased to assist you in this effort. Or, if you have already dropped off petition signatures at your MPP’s office, we thank you and ask that you please email us at info@ahuscanada.org so that we can keep an eye open for it in the Legislature!
