e-3398 (National defence and military operations)

E-petition
Initiated by Clifford Turner from Gabriola, British Columbia

Original language of petition: English

Petition to the House of Commons

Whereas:
  • Global conditions which have a critical impact on the sovereignty, security and well-being of all Canadians are changing at an alarming and unprecedented rate as a result of climate change, demographics, advances in technology and other factors; and
  • The Canadian Armed Forces play a critical role in the preservation and protection of Canada’s interests both domestically and internationally.
We, the undersigned, Canadian citizens and residents, call upon the House of Commons to redefine our nation’s defence policy and the functions of our armed forces to prioritize:
a. the protection of Canada’s sovereignty in the Arctic and elsewhere within our borders;
b. meeting United Nations commitments and reasonable participation in peacekeeping and humanitarian missions; and
c. properly equipping the military, including with the equipment needed to respond to an expected increase of natural disasters related to climate change, including floods and wildfires, and to assist in the necessary engineering needed for mitigation of climate-related changes to the environment.
