Petition to the Minister of Environment and Climate Change

Whereas:
  • Canada has made a commitment to protect at least 17 per cent of land areas and 10 per cent of marine areas by 2020;
  • Canada has less than two years to increase the amount of land and inland waters it protects by 60 per cent to meet its commitment under the United Nations Convention on Biological Diversity;
  • The North shore of Cable Bay on Galiano Island is for sale; and
  • This valuable piece of shoreline will be lost if sold to a developer.
We, the undersigned, residents of Canada, call upon the Minister of Environment and Climate Change to call upon the Government of Canada to acquire Cable Bay North on Galiano Island and add Galiano to the Gulf Islands National Park framework.
