Original language of petition: French

Petition to the House of Commons

  • The characters associated with cereal boxes and other consumer products are part of our collective imagination;
  • These characters are part of our folklore and embedded in our childhood memories;
  • The presence of these characters on cereal boxes does not hamper parents’ freedom of choice; and
  • Parents are responsible enough to make informed choices regarding the products they serve their children.
We, the undersigned, Canadian consumers, call upon the House of Commons to block the Senate bill that would ban characters and toys from consumer products and to respect citizens’ freedom of choice.
