Regardless of what political party you are voting for, the Multiple Sclerosis Society of Canada is asking you to #ElectToFight for multiple sclerosis this fall. Building on an earlier awareness campaign, the MS Society of Canada, with help from voters across our country, is launching an online letter writing campaign to federal election candidates on September 10, 2015. Canadians are asked to join the fight to #endMS by sending a letter to their local candidates to ensure key decision makers know that our country has the highest rate of MS in the world, and that greater support is needed for those affected by Canada’s disease.
From September 10 to October 19, Canadians will be asked to help put MS on the political radar. By visiting endMS.ca, people can send a message to their local candidates to highlight the importance of secure jobs and income for people living with MS and the need to accelerate MS research. Using their postal code, Canadians can find their local candidates, customize their message and click send. Once the message has been sent, advocates can share their participation in the campaign by using #ElectToFight and encourage their networks to write to their local candidates to #endMS.
