Today’s budget announcements make it clear that long-standing legal protections for the environment, including environmental reviews of major industrial projects like mines and oil pipelines will soon be rolled back or eliminated.
For decades, Canadians have depended on the federal government to safeguard our families and nature from pollution, toxic contamination and other environmental problems through a safety net of environmental laws. Today’s budget would cut up this environmental safety net to serve the interests of a few big companies.
Tens of thousands of Canadians are urging the federal government to protect the safety and security of our families and of nature through strong environmental laws. Join with us by signing the petition below and forwarding this email widely.
