P.S.A.'S · 4th June 2012
BlackOutSpeakOut.ca
Right now, the Federal Government is pushing through a massive budget bill (C-38) that undemocratically weakens or removes many of Canada's most important environmental protections, without input from the people these changes will affect most.

This bill also attempts to silence charities and other Canadian voices who speak out for our environment and other important issues.

Under the proposed bill, Ottawa will use its power to promote oil and other major industries instead of taking care of Canada's environment, wildlife and people.

Meanwhile, the bill provides $8 million in new funding to audit and possibly defund charities - including groups that advocate for better environmental laws.

That's why we're urgently asking you to sign this petition calling on your member of Parliament to stand up against Bill C-38.

Because silence is not an option when nature, our rights and democracy are under threat.
