Climate change is here
Write a letter to the editor

Dear Paov,

Who doesn’t have warm memories of summer? Relaxing at the lake or camping in the woods are beloved traditions, but in recent years Canada’s best months are taking on an ominous feel.

With record heat waves, wildfires, floods and storms hammering our communities, it’s hard not to feel a sense of unease as the climate crisis gets underway. Homes, businesses — even lives are being lost. Yet the federal government seems painfully committed to making it worse.

Now that the Canadian public is set to own the Trans Mountain pipeline and tanker project, any credibility Prime Minister Trudeau earned us on climate change is gone. Building this pipeline locks us into decades more pollution when we must instead make heroic cuts.

While Trudeau and Premier Rachel Notley turn their backs on climate action by attempting to force this pipeline through, they’re also spending millions of taxpayer dollars on promotional ads for the Trans Mountain pipeline. Ads which ignore that Canada will fail to meet its climate goals if it builds this pipeline.

We’ve been failing to meet these targets for nearly 30 years, and now we are out of time. Canadians are already paying the price for this inaction. Will you write a letter to the editor of your local paper to highlight the urgency of stopping this pipeline now?

WRITE YOUR LETTER TODAY We have all the solutions we need to the climate crisis, but we have to stop shovelling more fossil fuel on the fire. That will take courage and action from people like you. Thank you for speaking up in your community.

For the climate,
