There will be a “take note” debate on the subject of the situation in the Central African Republic, and Canada’s potential response to it, in the House of Commons this Wednesday 14 February. If you think Canada should get more involved in the international response to this crisis in particular, or indeed in global responses to challenges to human security in general, now is the perfect time to contact your MP and let them know.

For background on just what a take note debate is, click here. (Long story short, it’s a relatively open debate designed to allow consultation with the House before the government forms policy on a given issue.)
