Giving Day for Canadian Greens

  Dear Friend, It is World Environment Day and Giving Day for Greens in Canada. We have held off major fundraising for the last month as we supported the Green Party of Ontario and their great campaign leading up to this week’s election. Today, June 5, is the day for a big 24-hour push. I am in…

It is almost World Environment Day!

  Dear Friend, We are gearing up to tomorrow – Sunday is World Environment Day and Giving Day for the Green Party of Canada.  This is an exciting and challenging time for our party. We are launching the leadership race soon. We have so much work to do as we rebuild the federal Greens in readine…

“HOORAY!!!”

  Hi Friend, Thanks to Greens across Ontario, with supporters from all over Canada, we did it!! We had our best results ever in my home province.  Ontario Green Leader Mike Schreiner not only held his seat of Guelph, he increased his majority to an astounding 54.5 per cent of the vote. That mir…

Add you voice for REAL action on plastic waste

  Hi Friend, Did you see the email from Karen Farley about the loopholes in the government's proposed ban on single-use plastics (SUP)? We must send a strong message that what they are proposing is totally inadequate. Click HERE to send a letter to the Environment Minister.  You can also sign a…

Let’s Ban Single-Use Plastics NOW

  Dear Friend, Plastic pollution is the second greatest threat to the environment after climate change. Garbage dumps overflow with plastic waste. It pollutes rivers and washes into the ocean, forming massive islands of plastic junk, killing birds and marine life. Microplastics travel up the fo…

I’m with Mike!

  Dear Friend I just wanted to add my thumbs up to yesterday’s great email from Mike Morrice. Green wins in Ontario will make a huge difference, no matter where you live in Canada! I just completed a round of town halls in Ontario and B.C. – the first two legs of my national Reconnection Tour. …

All hands on deck to elect Green MPPs in Ontario!

  Dear Friend, It has been eight months since we made history in Kitchener Centre. I’m honoured to be the first Green MP elected from Ontario. Believe me, the last eight months have been a steep learning curve! But I know our mighty Green caucus is making a big difference in Ottawa, working acr…

It’s crunch time for my thermal coal petition

  Hello Friend, First of all, thanks so much to Pixie Hobby for writing to you yesterday about the need to ban the export of thermal coal. By the way, when I was at Sierra Club, Pixie was working as a Justice Department lawyer within Environment Canada. I am so proud she decided that, in her re…

Stop the train!!

  Hello Friend, Every day, around the clock, dozens of trains with hundreds of cars loaded with dirty thermal coal rumble through my neighborhood in Crescent Beach, B.C. They cross the border into Canada from the U.S., just 14 km away and travel to the Roberts Bank coal port another 40 km down …

Last Call! Earth Day Challenge

  Hi Friend, I hope you saw the Earth Day Challenge from Elizabeth. Paul’s email was (literally) right on the money. The response to the Earth Day Challenge has been fabulous.  Donors we have not heard from in a while are signing up again to be monthly donors at the $22 level and many of you ha…

Did you read Elizabeth’s email?

  Hi Friend, It really took me back to Earth Day three years ago.  I know exactly where I was – at Elizabeth and John’s wedding. Then dashing straight from the church to Nanaimo to get back to door-to-door canvassing. We knew we had the momentum. Less than two weeks later Nanaimo-Ladysmith made…

Earth Day Challenge!

  Dear Friend, Tomorrow is Earth Day – the 52nd year I have celebrated it. I was in grade 10 in 1970 when Earth Day was launched. And here we are 52 years later and our situation is at its most perilous. Three years: Of course, some of you may recall that Earth Day is also John’s and my wedding…

So we’re the dangerous climate radicals now

Cooperation doesn’t mean a blank cheque

  Dear Friend, I will never criticize cooperation across party lines. But I am so disappointed that the NDP have given Justin Trudeau a blank cheque – a promise to vote for the next four budgets – sight unseen.   We now know the next budget will include a massive increase in military spending a…

It’s time to lift people with disabilities out of poverty

  Dear Friend, One in five people in Canada has a disability and more than a million Canadians with disabilities live in poverty. People with disabilities in Canada have a higher rate of unemployment and people with severe disabilities earn less than $13,000 per year on average.  Existing suppo…

The window on our future is closing – will you support climate action?

  Dear Friend, It’s been a tough couple of years and a tougher few weeks. We just marked two years since the beginning of the pandemic in Canada. The Russian invasion of Ukraine has horrified people around the world. And in the middle of all this, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (…

Let’s Ban Thermal Coal NOW

  Dear Friend, Thermal coal is the dirtiest fossil fuel out there. It’s responsible for half of total global carbon emissions – and the toxic pollution created by burning the stuff kills around 800,000 people every year. The federal government knows this. That’s why it created the Powering Past…

Last chance to give.

  Hi Friend, Did you happen to see Amita’s message this morning? It was an optimistic one about the Green Party moving forward. And the future of the GPC is most promising. But we can’t do it without you. We've raised nearly $200,000 this month alone. That’s amazing. The generosity of hundreds…

  Dear Friend, December 30 and I am experiencing déjà vu. Didn’t I feel just this way one year ago? “Thank goodness this awful year is over! 2021 will be so much better!” NOT.   Not for family members wanting reunions. COVID still stalks our gatherings. Not for Canadians wanting parliamentarian…

Message from Elizabeth May

  Dear Friend, This week parliament resumed. While I am deeply grateful to have been re-elected in Saanich-Gulf Islands, it is bitter-sweet to have lost my dear colleague Paul Manly, and to be seated far from my former colleague, now in the Liberal ranks.  I cannot claim 2021 was a good year. B…
