A Message from Scott Niedermayer – Canadian for the Great Bear
Dear Fellow Canadian for the Great Bear,
I’m writing to thank you for standing alongside me and so many others in saying the Great Bear is no place for pipelines and tankers. Not here. Not ever. And not at any price.
With your voice behind us, WWF and the Coastal First Nations have sounded powerful messages about the unacceptable risk this project poses to the Great Bear, our Canadian treasure. We’ve urged provincial and federal decision-makers to understand what is really at stake here. We’ve helped voice the concerns of communities, leaders, artists and students from across the country. And we’ve spoken out for whales, bears, and other animals that cannot do so on their own.
You are critical to amplifying and spreading these messages. By joining our conversations on Facebook and Twitter, by reading and sharing our blog posts – you are raising a louder voice and helping reach more Canadians. Check in with us regularly. Our activities will build in exciting ways over the coming weeks.
And today, right now, we need your voice more than ever.
August 31st is the deadline for public comment to the Joint Review Panel . This body is charged with assessing whether the Northern Gateway project is in Canada’s best interest. Please take a few moments to register your comments online right now.
Thank you again. It’s through your voice and commitment that we will stand up to protect the future of this most precious place.
– Scott Niedermayer
