SAMPLE EMAIL FOR REGIS:

(courtesy of @gylIlenhaal on twt)

I am contacting you regarding the incident that occurred at 100 High Park Avenue on May 27th, 2020. I am a concerned Canadian citizen who would like to express my anger and concern over the death of 29 year old Regis Korchinski-Paquet. She has died after allegedly falling off her balcony, despite police being present. As a concerned citizen, I am very upset and disturbed at the events that took place and the allegations that this was caused on the part of the police. I want justice for her death and I demand answers. As a citizen, I demand for the "transparency and accountability" as well as the "disclosure of as much information as possible to the public" that have on all accounts been specified on the SIU webpage. Charges need to be brought to all the officers involved, and all information and evidence should be made available to the public.

Sincerely,

[insert your name]
