Canada's Environmental Laws Need Your Help

As you read this, an organized campaign out of Alberta is trying to persuade Canada's Senators to kill Bill C-69.

In 2016, the federal government announced a sweeping review of Canada's broken environmental laws. After two years of expert reviews, input by scientists and from Canadians—Bill C-69 made it through the House of Commons and is now before the Senate. 

The assessment and approval of pipelines, mines, and dams, and other projects cannot be done without meaningful oversight. This bill is an important step towards ensuring that environmental assessment has a solid foundation of science.

Tell Senators to pass Bill C-69 and put stronger, science-based environmental laws in place for generations to come.
