Oh Canada!

As a Canadian, I am more than embarrassed by my country’s environmental record over the last decade, I’m appalled and angry at the lack of leadership that has lead to this kind of international condemnation. Canada was ranked dead last twice over in two new independent rankings of our environmental policy.

    What a shame. And I don’t believe the “leading” countries are doing nearly enough to coerce a global response to climate change. The world looks like a bunch of lazy students trying to figure out how much they have to study to get a D.

    We need to build a grassroots army of nonviolence and love to turn this climate crisis around! Join CCL and have an amazing amount of fun doing just that. Our Ottawa conference in November was inspiring and fun and hope-full, Jay.
