Yesterday the federal government took away our right to participate in environmental assessments. Today, Canada is a less democratic country. Big oil has more say about the future of Canada than you and I. I did a pile of media interviews yesterday but that's not enough. We have to wake up Canada's Parliament and alert them to what is happening.
Unfortunately, we’re going to have to make a very big noise.
Your Member of Parliament (MP) is home in your riding this week. The Easter break following the budget is an important opportunity for them to gauge the mood of the country.
We need your help again.
As you may know, Ontario has become a world-leader when it comes to developing green, renewable energy. But Tim Hudak, leader of the Conservative Party of Ontario, wants to reverse this accomplishment and recently introduced a bill to kill green energy in the province.
His surrogates and front-groups have already been mobilized and recently launched a letter writing campaign targeting Ontario Members of the Provincial Parliament (MPP).
The bill to kill green energy will be voted on March 22nd. So there’s not much time to act!
Thank you for standing up against the flawed plan to slaughter wolves to 'protect' Woodland Caribou. We collected almost 3000 endorsements of our official response in just 4 days! Government officials have been overwhelmed by the outcry from Canadians and people around world.

This report is a progress report on the research funded by Sierra Club carried out from May to October in 2011. The three main projects share an overarching theme that examines threats to coastal biodiversity because of changes in the hydrologic regime of Lakes Huron and Erie.
The first project provides an initial glimpse of how northern pike utilize wetland and nearshore habitat in Tadenac Bay and the surrounding region.
I don't know what it is about today but I'm feeling slightly, well … radical. How about you?
When I wrote before Christmas about an impending government attack on Canada's environment movement, I wasn't expecting a formal Declaration of War just 9 days into the New Year. It came in the form of an "open letter" from Natural Resources Minister Joe Oliver that’s receiving heavy media coverage all across the country.
