It is Canada Day and I write to you, my Member of Parliament, to ask you to work with me toward real climate leadership in Canada.
The science is in. The facts are plain. All over the world we must make the transformation to renewable energy as quickly as possible. We have to change from a reliance on fossil fuels as the foundation of our economy to renewable energy.
This will be a huge challenge, but we know we can do it with your leadership and support. The future well-being of our children and grandchildren and of all living beings on the planet depends on it.
Will you commit to working toward these changes?
· End fossil fuel subsidies
· Put a price on carbon
· Support the development of a renewable energy plan for Canada
Will you talk with your leader about putting these three points on the party agenda?
I believe these are the structural changes that will help Canadians move toward a twenty-first century, low-carbon economy.
Let’s leave our children a strong economy with good, sustainable jobs so they can feed and support their families. Let’s build a future Canada we can be proud of.
I would be pleased to meet with you and discuss these ideas in more depth in person.
