Thank you to everyone who participated in our letter campaign to the Federal Ministers who are responsible for marine shipping, protecting our oceans and the environment. We sent almost 2500 letters telling all three of them to take action NOW to fix Canada’s West Coast supply chain and to put the safety of local residents and the environment ahead of the interests of foreign shipping companies around BC’s Southern Gulf Islands.
It is still very worthwhile to send your message to the ministers via email:
Transport Minister Omar Alghabra: email@example.com
Environment Minister Jonathan Wilkinson: firstname.lastname@example.org
Minister of Fisheries and Oceans Bernadette Jordan: Bernadette.Jordan@parl.gc.ca
We will have a new letter writing campaign starting soon, so please stay tuned for more!
