Together with organizations from across the country, we’re speaking out against Prime Minister Harper’s efforts to gut environmental protection.

What if your voice was taken away from you?

Right now, the Harper government is pushing through a bill to weaken many of the country’s most important environmental protection measures. He wants to silence Canadian voices who defend nature.

The proposed budget implementation bill suppresses public debate and fast-tracks risky projects like oil pipelines. These proposed measures threaten the wildlife, land, water, air and climate we all depend on.

On June 4th we are taking a stand against this attempt to take away our voices. Along with other environmental organizations and other non-profits as part of the Black Out, Speak Out campaign across the country, we are blacking out our website for 24 hours.

SILENCE IS NOT AN OPTION.

If you believe that our environmental laws require scientific evidence and public discussion, speak out. If you care about the protection of nature and the right to dissent, please add your voice to ours now.

Sincerely,

Bruce Cox
