Petition to the Government of Canada

Whereas:
  • Lineworkers work hard to build and maintain Canada's powerline infrastructure to ensure Canadians have access to secure and reliable energy;
  • Lineworkers work with thousands of volts of electricity 365 days a year, often under dangerous and harsh conditions, to maintain the safety and welfare of fellow Canadians;
  • Lineworkers put their lives and safety on the line every day with little awareness from the community regarding the potential dangers of their occupation; and
  • Lineworkers are often the first responders during storms and other catastrophic events that cause power interruption and infrastructure damage, and work all hours to restore power while ensuring communities are safe for residents, volunteers and other first responders.
We, the undersigned, citizens of Canada, call upon the Government of Canada to honour these brave men and women by recognizing July 10th of every year as National Lineworker Appreciation Day.
