To raise awareness of men’s mental health, Dan Perrins just spent five days walking 120 km (74.5 miles) from from Hamilton to the Ontario legislature. He has also provided the legislature with a letter which included a very short list of demands, and has now begun a hunger strike with the goal of having the legislature address them.

In other words, Dan isn’t asking for anything more than equal application and enforcement of existing laws.
Two twitter hashtags, #hungerstrike and #IStandWithDan are being used to support and spread awareness of Dan’s efforts.
For anyone interesting in helping Dan, wareness of his campaign can be demonstrated to Parliament members by contacting them to ask what is being done to address his demands. Information on how to contact your representatives is available on the website of the Legislative Assembly of Ontario. Contacting news outlets such as CBC Toronto and The Rebel can also help draw attention to the cause.
