We humans share collective responsibility to protect the natural health of Ontario, Canada and the planet.
We are proud to join a group of distinguished Canadians: Indigenous groups, environmental groups and progressive businesses in signing a joint statement in response to the Ontario Government’s review of the Endangered Species Act.
We signed this for the Forests, and for the wetlands; for the wolves, the cougars and the caribou; for the barn owls, the golden wing warblers and for the wood thrush with its beautiful haunting song. We signed for the monarch butterfly, the rusty patch bumble bee and the magnificent ancient snapping turtle. We signed for the long list of other plants, fish, reptiles, insects and mammals – all threatened or endangered by our actions. We speak for them and for the unborn generations of people who deserve to know the life that we love.
We need to act. Now is not the time to look away. Please join us.
