Dear (Your Member of Parliament's or the Senator’s Name)

I am writing to you to follow up on my telephone call requesting a meeting.  This April 4 is Refugee Rights Day, the date on which the Canadian Supreme Court rendered the very important Singh decision in 1985.  In that decision, the Court ruled that the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms protects the right of refugee claimants in Canada to life, liberty and security of the person, and entitled claimants to an oral hearing in accordance with the principles of fundamental justice.

Since this is the anniversary of the Singh decision, we would like to tell you about the advances made in the protection of refugee rights as a result of the Singh decision, as well as about some of the threats to those rights.  We support refugee rights and have experience /first hand knowldege of the issues we wish to raise with you.  

We look forward to meeting you on…[confirm date of meeting/request for meeting depending on what was discussed in the call]

Thank you.
