Please urge the Supreme Court Chief Justice of Canada to accept John Graham’s appeal (hand written letters are preferred, rather than e-mails). It should be stressed that the case is a matter of national importance. Letters should also be written to the justice critics of the oppostion parties.
You can send hard copy letters for free, no stamp required, to MPs' and Ministers' House of Commons address. Please also write to your MP, asking them to write to the Ministers and Parliamentary Secretary. Look up your MP here.
House of Commons
1) Right Honourable Justin Trudeau (email@example.com)
2) Honourable Rob Oliphant, Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of Foreign Affairs (Rob.Oliphant@parl.gc.ca)
3) Honourable David Lametti, Justice Minister (David.Lametti@parl.gc.ca)
4) Honourable Marc Garneau, Foreign Minister (firstname.lastname@example.org)
It is also helpful to send a signed hard-copy of your letter opposing John Graham's extradition to the following address:
Honourable David Lametti, Justice Minister (David.Lametti@parl.gc.ca)
Dear Honourable [MP's First Name, Last Name],
Will you help bring innocent Yukon Indigenous John Graham home from South Dakota? See retired MP Honourable Libby Davies' letter and Honourable Elizabeth May's letter. Prominent First Nation support is here.
Will you talk to Amnesty International's Dr. Jennifer Wade 604-263-4727 about this? John's lawyer is Marilyn Sandford QC 604-684-0778.
Mr. Graham was wrongfully extradited in 2007 to South Dakota, then wrongfully convicted of Nova Scotia's Anna Mae Aquash's still unsolved murder. Will you do everything necessary to immediately repatriate John Graham? Canada's sincere commitment to UNDRIP and the TRC process requires freedom for Canada's Indigenous political prisoners and decarceration for all disproportionately imprisoned Indigenous.
See Vancouver Sun's "Ian Mulgrew: Ghost Dancers Return to Haunt BC Supreme Court" and "Who Killed Anna Mae?"
Gratefully, [Name, Title, Address]
