most of us didn’t vote tory, yet they got a majority. and they’re using it to fast-track devastation of the environment. but can we wait til the next election and hope for something different? what if there’s nothing left to devastate? the current devastation proposed in bill c-38 is massive. it seems environmental concerns get in the way of making money–in the short term, short-sighted money-making ventures seem at odds with the environment, but in the long term money-making ventures must support the environment, else you can’t make money.
can we stand by for a few years? even some of my fellow greens think so, but isn’t that just what harper wants? so what can we do? http://saveela.org/what-can-you-do-to-help/ says,
> Call, email or write:
- Prime Minister Stephen Harper
- Your Member of Parliament
The best tactic is to call and request a meeting with your MP.
> Sign a Public Petition to the House of Commons (residents of Canada only, no age restriction).
> Sign an Online Petition.
- Note: an Online Petition does not replace the Public Petition as it cannot be presented to Parliament. We encourage Canadian citizens to sign both the Public Petition and online petition. Non-Canadians may sign the online petition to voice their support for the ELA.
