Dear friends, 

Right now, a major UN summit in Bali has just a few days left to hammer out
an agreement on stopping catastrophic climate change. But instead of helping
out, Canada is actually sabotaging the UN talks! On Saturday, experts gave
us the global "fossil" award for being the worst country in the world on
climate change. 

There's still a few days left to save Canada's reputation -- and the climate
-- but we need a massive democratic roar to remind our Prime Minister what
Canada is all about, and stop him from blocking the world at Bali. Click
below to sign the petition and we'll advertise the number of signatures we
get in an ad campaign across Canada this week. Our goal is to get 25,000
people to sign in just 3 days before the ads run. Click below, then forward
this email to all your friends and family right away: 


Enough is enough. Prime Minister Harper's short-sighted, undemocratic and
big oil-driven policy on climate change is damaging the world and destroying
our image as a good country. We're supposed to be the nice guys, who try to
do the right thing in the world. 

The vast majority of Canadians are hopping mad on this issue -- we can win
this. We just need to show Harper how serious we are that he change course.
Sign up now and forward this email to everyone you know - we've got just 3
days to hit 25,000 signatures! 

With much respect and hope,

Ricken Patel,
