Canada: Protest against the proposed decriminalization of polygamy

We have received the following call for action from friends in Canada who ask that we write letters to Dr. Martha Bailey protesting her recommendation that the Federal Government of Canada remove Section 293 from the Criminal Code of Canada, thus, decriminalizing polygamy in Canada.
Four papers made up this report: Dr. Bailey’s paper was the only one to call for the decriminalization of polygamy; two others called for more research; and the other said no change was needed to Section 293.

WLUML recently issued other calls for action related to the situation in Canada and the latest update was related to the rejection of Ontario's use of Shari'a law, an issue around which many mobilised internationally.

UPDATE: Canada: McGuinty rejects Ontario's use of Shariah law
