Harper Alert - Act NOW

I just received this alert from Avaaz.org. Read it and, if you agree, follow the link:

Dear fellow Canadian Avaaz members,

The Canadian government is breaking its own environmental laws, and could get away with it if we don't act within 24 hours. Last June, Parliament passed a law confirming our legal obligation to comply with the Kyoto Protocol, and gave a heel-dragging Harper government 60 days to show how they would do it. Harper's plan is out, and meets Kyoto's targets 13 years too late – it clearly breaks the law.

Canadians are irate over this, but somehow everyone failed to notice the official public consultation period on the law, which ends TOMORROW. The comments that Environment Canada receives in this period will be admissible in court, when the Harper government is brought before a judge on this. If there are no comments, the government will claim in court that the public supports its bogus plan. This argument has worked before, and we must not let it happen again. Please click below to send a quick message to Environment Minister Baird, and tell everyone you know to act
right away:


Sincerely,Ricken Patel and the rest of the Avaaz team

I'm amazed there are still people out there who believe in the fairy tale of global warming due to man.

Unfortunately, I think bill C-30 died on the order paper when Harper prorogued parliament, so, despite the democratic will of the House, it is gone.

Don't you just love politics?
