Petition to the Government of Canada
We are called as people of faith to love and care for creation;
Canadian churches and faith-based organizations have united under the banner "For the Love of Creation";
The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted every aspect of our lives and exacerbated existing vulnerabilities;
Respecting the interconnectedness of creation is critical for climate action, ecological and economic integrity, right relations with Indigenous Peoples, and for holistic recovery;
The shift in human behaviour resulted in modest, but unsustainable, emissions reductions and demonstrated the scientific imperative of systems change to limit warming; and
We can build back better.
