Canada Do Not Pull Out of Kyoto Protocol agreement

    1. Lorrie  Bortuzzo
    2. Petition by

      Lorrie Bortuzzo

      Coquitlam, Canada

We have an obligation to the Kyoto Protocol and to the environment. When Canada signed the Kyoto Protocol, all Canadians signed that agreement. Along with 191 other countries we signed that contract, now the Canadian government is contempleting Canada's removal from this protocol in December 2011. Should we back out of an agreement because we did not meet our emissions requirements per agreement? The answer is NO! Please sign this petition to tell Canadian Environment Minister Peter Kent that Canadians, fellow neighbor Americans and all International friends of Canada, do not agree with Canada dishonoring our environmental agreement.

      Don't shit where you eat and by not putting constraints on the level of emissions we put into the air we are doing just that.

      The Harper government must go through the legal process of pulling out of the Kyoto Protocol; he cannot just arbitrarily pull out without consulting the parliament! If he is planning to sign a new international climate change agreement, he should make an agreement on that before pulling out as well.

      This is outrageous. As a Canadian, I'm embarrassed.

      Most of us had looked up to you as a role model in the international community for many things, and we need leaders with wisdom to lead the global movements.
