Dear Sir or Madam,
In 2010, Canada signed the UN Convention on Biological Diversity’s Biodiversity Targets, promising to protect 17% of our land for nature by 2020. We’re nowhere near that number, and time is running out.
What are we waiting for? I’m tired of the inaction of provinces and ashamed that my country, famed for its wild spaces, is doing nothing to take care of them. I want you to work with the federal government to fulfil our promise to the 195 other countries that have also made this commitment. I want you to protect biodiversity in our province, and to make it a priority for all our futures, for the good of the country and the planet.
