Petition to the Government of Canada

Whereas:
  • Having access to water and food that is free of contaminants is a basic human right. To provide this, we need to take proactive measures to protect our soil, rivers, lakes and oceans;
  • Canada’s economy is not solely dependent on the oil and gas industry. We are, however, solely responsible for cleaning up the oil spills on our land and in our water;
  • The Government of Canada found approximately 26% of Canada's total greenhouse gas emissions, which are known to cause climate change, came from the oil and gas sector; and
  • Climate change has a further detrimental impact on Canada’s food and water systems, as well as on the economy and human health.
We, the undersigned, citizens and residents of Canada, call upon the Government of Canada to increase commitment and investment, financially and otherwise, to the development of renewable resources and a clean energy future for current Canadians and for generations to come.
