Recently I received an e-mail from the House of Commons Electronic Petitions website notifying me that on February 7th, 2018, petition e-1205 was presented in the House of Commons. The e-mail goes on to say, “You will be notified once a government response has been tabled.”
This is a petition that I mentioned on this blog previously—it was calling on the federal government “to require public canteens under federal jurisdiction to provide a vegan option, and to raise this issue and work with provincial and territorial counterparts to require the same at all levels of government.” You can see the full text of the petition here, although it is no longer open to signatures.
On the House of Commons website, it is mentioned that this topic was brought up as well, but it doesn’t say if or how anyone responded to it. You can see what I am talking about here.
I am looking forward to seeing how the government responds. I will post on this blog again to let you know how they responded once I receive further information on the subject!
