"There is a willful blindness on the part of our government that deliberately ignores the threat of climate change for all Canadians. Canada, of all industrialized nations, is at greatest risk of climate change's catastrophic consequences for our melting Arctic regions, rising marine waters along our coasts, climate dependent resources like agriculture, forestry, fisheries, tourism and winter sports, and our economic future.  Thank you for putting yourselves on the line to call for action of our government."

"Greenpeace calls on oil companies and the Canadian government to stop the tar sands, create an Arctic Sanctuary in the uninhabited areas of the Arctic Ocean and implement a green energy future. Climate change costs lives and there is simply no more time to waste.  We need an Energy Revolution now."
