"Climate Justice" will be a provocative panel discussion examining the
moral imperative for Canadian action on climate change. Panelists will
explore the inequitable impact on people and ecosystems in the
developing world and remote regions of Canada, the overwhelming
responsibility of industrialized countries like Canada for human-induced
climate change, the resource disparity for taking action, and Canada's
international tradition of leadership on tough moral issues.
Today, Canada is playing a lead role in a continental plan to boost oil
and gas production and consumption, and an increasingly weak role in
meeting its international commitment to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
As countries around the world are preparing to meet in Germany at a UN
Climate Summit this July, NOW IS THE TIME FOR CANADIAN LEADERSHIP!
A collaborative project of the Assembly of First Nations, Canadian
Ecumenical Jubilee Initiative, Canadian Council for International
Cooperation and David Suzuki Foundation.
