As you read this, the last slivers of old growth forests in BC are being logged, northern boreal forests are being doused with poisonous pesticides, and salmon populations are imperilled on both coasts. 
Science tells us that we must protect nature to limit global warming , yet exploitative industries continue to destroy it with zero regard for Indigenous sovereignty.
Corporations get away with this appalling behaviour because Canadian policy protects the polluter.
This is a big reason why the Canadian government has missed virtually every single nature protection target it has ever set for itself. But we have an opportunity to correct this, as Montreal hosts the biggest nature protection event of the decade—the Convention on Biological Diversity (CDB) COP15. As the host nation, Canada must set an example for biodiversity protection.
We need a Nature & Biodiversity Act  that lays out a plan to actually achieve nature protection targets. The Act must protect the rich ecosystems of Canada in the right way—by respecting Indigenous sovereignty and holding corporations accountable.
Canada’s Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau, and Minister for Environment and Climate Change, Steven Guilbeault, have the power to make this happen. Together, let’s show them that we are fed up with the prioritization of profit-driven corporations over Indigenous rights and the environment. We are not apart from the natural world — we are a part of it. It's far time we heal our relationship with Nature and recognize the value of all life on Earth.
Tell Steven Guilbeault and Justin Trudeau to pass a strong Nature & Biodiversity Act that respects Indigenous rights and protects biodiversity.
