Please respond to Minister Baird's flyer.
Earlier this week, Minister John Baird distributed a flyer to his constituents in Ottawa West-Nepean. In this flyer, he specifically asked residents to respond and indicate if they were a Nortel pensioner. Please let him know, for each adult in the house, that you are either a Nortel pensioner, the spouse of a pensioner, pensioner survivor, deferred pensioner, disabled employee, or a terminated employee. If you have adult children in the riding, get them to respond and write in "adult child of a Nortel pensioner".
The first question is: What is your top federal concern?
Tell him how you are being victimized by foreign vulture bondholders who are lining up to grab your deferred wages, disability benefits and/or health and medical benefits.
Tell him how your life insurance is cancelled and you now cannot afford replacement insurance on your greatly reduced pension. Tell him how there will be no money to bury you when you die.
Tell him how you were terminated without any severance pay and how all your life savings were used up before you found another job.
Tell him how, as a disabled employee, you cannot return to work, you have no alternative for insurance or wage replacement and cannot afford an alternate health replacement plan.
He is also asking you to let him know if he and Stephen Harper's Conservative Government are on the "Right Track" or the "Wrong Track". Please let him know that he and the Harper Government have both taken the "Wrong Track" by not offering legislation to protect employees caught up in Canada's most complex bankruptcy. Let him know how you are being affected. Tell him they can act as quickly for us as they did to expedite a special law to freeze the assets of foreign despots.
He needs to get the message directly from his constituents. His majority was under 5000 votes in the last election. He needs to feel some heat so let's give it to him.
If you no longer have the flyer, just send him a note with your personal comments and mail it postage free to his office on Parliament Hill:
Minister John Baird P.C., M.P.
Room 310, Justice Building
House of Commons
