LETTER: We need to strengthen our commitment to fighting climate change

'Now is the time so don't fail us'

We need to strengthen the Canadian Climate Bill C-12 currently before Parliament in order to effectively battle the world climate emergency threatening our future. Without effective action now, it will be too late.

Members of Parliament must get in line with a majority of Canadians or we will not avert a coming disaster. Half measures are no longer acceptable so members must now make a bold effort.

Now is the time so don’t fail us. We are counting on you to set an example.

It is now up to you. We will be watching.

John C. Wilson
