- Once you have the meeting set up – you can do a presentation based on Sensei Greg’s presentation. Use the presentation template here.
- After the presentation – hopefully your local MPP is as action-oriented as the Honorable Todd Smith, MPP for Prince Edward & Hastings County. A copy of Mr. Smith’s letter to the Ministry of Culture, Tourism and Sport can be found here.
We have uploaded sample documents based on Sensei Greg’s letters, that you can use to write your local MPP (the links are located above). They will also be posted to the Fight1087 Website.
