Petition to the Minister of Environment and Climate Change
More than 214,000 of Our Fallen, in war and conflicts in the service of Canada, are buried overseas or have no known grave;
Many descendants, relatives and friends are unable to ever visit the final resting place of those Fallen by reason of cost or travel restrictions or other reasons;
These Canadians gave their lives to help preserve the society and freedoms we enjoy today;
The Never Forgotten National Memorial Foundation (NFNMF) has been created to construct a fitting monument to those fallen Canadians at Green Cove, on the eastern shore of Cape Breton Island, in the Cape Breton National Park, which depicts Mother Canada welcoming home the souls of these 214,000, and the souls of those Canadians who will be lost in the same manner in the future;
A License of Occupation (aka Building Permit) from Parks Canada is needed by NFNMF in order to initiate a fundraising campaign to construct this monument; and
There is an impasse between Parks Canada and NFNMF preventing the issuance of this License of Occupation, and Parks Canada has withdrawn from the negotiating table.
We, the undersigned, Citizens of Canada, call upon the Minister of Environment and Climate Change to direct that Parks Canada return to the negotiating table with NFNMF with a clear mandate to, respectfully and in good faith, work out whatever differences remain unresolved in order to move forward with officially granting a License of Occupation to the NFNM Foundation.
