Reduce Auto Emissions Petition

Bow Valley Clean Air Society

Since we can’t eliminate the use of cars all together, help us ensure that Canada’s outdated vehicle emissions standards are drastically improved. By adopting standards equivalent to California’s Clean Cars law, we would reduce carbon emissions from cars by 30 per cent by 2016, using only existing and available technology. Please sign this petition, which asks the Alberta Government to adopt the California standards for vehicle emissions. Read more about Reduce Auto Emissions Petition

Join federal party leaders - sign the KYOTOplus pledge

Sierra Club of Canada

April 2, 2008

Hi! Moments ago, opposition party leaders Stéphane Dion, Gilles Duceppe and Jack Layton signed a historic pledge to fight climate change. The KYOTOplus pledge is part of a national global warming petition campaign launched today on Parliament Hill by Sierra Club Canada and a broad collective of environmental and public interest organizations. The Prime Minister and Environment Minister John Baird were also invited to sign the pledge, but declined.

I am giving you the inside scoop so that you can be among the first to sign the KYOTOplus citizens petition. I am especially encouraging you to use the Send-to-a-friend feature to jump start the momentum on this petition today. Please go to:
