SAVE THE BEES, PLEASE

Thank you for joining our “Save the Bees” campaign.

We don’t take the time to breathe in the life around us and do something to protect it often enough, so I want to sincerely thank you for signing our new petition.

Democratic Participation: Interesting and Unique Opportunity

February 28, 2013

Dear Friend,

Sierra Club Canada is a proudly non-partisan organization; we’ve always strived to work with ALL political parties, federal, provincial and municipal. Our history is well-documented. That’s not to say we don’t engage in the democratic process, we do! For example, during federal elections we issue a report fairly analyzing and comparing the party platforms. Our mission is to empower people to protect, restore and enjoy a healthy and safe planet, after all!

Pickering Nuclear: A Cracking Bad Idea

Extending the operations of the Pickering Nuclear plant for up to an additional 10 years beyond its designed life of 2014-2016 is a Cracking Bad Idea.

Public hearings begin May 29, 2013 in Pickering, Ontario.
