Get the Canadian government to help fight the fires in the Amazon Rainforest
The Amazon Rainforest has been on fire for weeks. The lack of media coverage is outrageous. We are on the verge of losing one of the worlds most important ecosystems. The Amazon Rainforest is home to 10% of the worlds known species. The loss of this area would be catastrophic to the environment. Loss of that amount of trees as well as animals would have irreversible consequences. Our planet is dying, this is one of many things we need to be worried about immediately to preserve our home before it's too late to save it. I am fourteen years old and I don't want my planet to die before I even get to experience it. The Amazon is an amazing and beautiful place that deserves our attention. Please sign this petition to call on the Canadian government to take immediate action to help Brazil to save the rainforest. Also please take the time to share this petition and this event on your social media platforms, we need to be talking about this and creating awareness.

Petition for Amazon to save The Amazon
The Amazon rainforest is dying. There are over 74,000 fires in this massive rainforest and there is nothing being done to save it. Jeff Bezos, you are the richest man in the world. You named your company after this forest but what are you doing to protect it? Please use the abundance of wealth that you have to save our planet's dying lungs. The least we can do is sign a petition, and gain enough support to rally the ones with the power and influence to save the Amazon. Please don't let this forest full of animals and wildlife die. #ActForTheAmazon
Petition to Windsor City Council
Support the seasonal closure of Matchette rd. and Malden rd. to save species at risk
Please support Windsor's City Council to impose a temporary road closure (i.e., “local traffic” only detour) of Matchette Rd., from Sprucewood Ave. to Broadway St. (1.8 km) , and Malden Rd, from Todd Lane to Armanda St. (1.6 km), beginning on Sept 1 2019 and extending to October 27 2019 (8 weeks). The area and time recommended for the closure are especially significant for young snake migration some of which are considered a species-at-risk (SAR). At this time of year they are being born (or hatched) and looking for a hibernation location. Since 2015, a total of 1,243 snakes have been found dead-on-road, including 263 individual SAR snakes. The majority of all dead snakes (63%) and all dead SAR snakes (72%) were found on Malden and Matchette roads (combined). Also, the majority of all dead snakes (72%) and all dead SAR snakes (73%) were found in September and October (combined) It will not just be snakes that this closure would be helping but the abundance of wildlife that live in the Ojibway Prairie Complex which is recognized as: an Area of Natural and Scientific Interest, Provincially Significant Wetland, a Carolinian Canada Site, an Important Amphibian and Reptile Area, and part of the International Wildlife Refuge for the Detroit River (first of its kind for North America). The OPC contains the largest protected tallgrass prairie remnant in Ontario. This complex supports a 160 species at risk in Ontario, some of which are found nowhere else in Canada and others which are globally imperiled. "They’re disappearing because their habitat is in tatters, and we’re running over them with our cars. We’re doing something about the first problem. The city is set to acquire Ojibway Shores, the last natural shore on the Canadian side of the Detroit River, and add it to the other remnants that compose the Ojibway Prairie Complex. If we can do that, we can temporarily close several kilometres of roads to protect our investment." - Anne Jarvis, The Windsor Star 22/08/19. Signing this petition shows to your elected officials that this is an important issue that needs to be addressed to help our local wildlife from going extinct.
Petition to Minister of Environment and Climate Change Canada
Ban With A Plan: We Need a National Pollinator Recovery Action Plan!
Join us! Let’s tell government that we need a National Pollinator Recovery Action Plan. Pollinators, such as bees, butterflies, moths and flies, play critical roles in ecosystems and in the production of our food. If you’ve eaten an apple or worn a comfy cotton t-shirt, you can thank a pollinator for transporting pollen between those plants’ blossoms. Despite the important services they provide, the populations of many wild pollinators are declining, largely due to changes in their habitat, intensive agricultural practices and pesticide use, invasive species, disease and climate change. The good news is that much can be done to bring pollinator numbers back. We can create habitat by planting pollinator-friendly plants along roadsides, in parks, along utility corridors and even in our backyards and schoolyards! We can support sustainable agricultural practices, such as crop rotation and retaining hedgerows. We can ban the use of harmful pesticides. Taken together, actions like these promote “pollinator recovery” and require attention from industry, governments at all levels and each of us. Working with corporations, municipalities, provinces, territories and Indigenous Peoples, the action plan would: Create a National Pollinator Monitoring Program Establish habitat restoration projects in areas such as city parks, right-of-ways and along roadways to create pollinator pathways across Canada Pollinators need a voice that only you can give. It is time for dedicated action to halt their decline. Read the letter to the Minister: Dear Minister of Environment and Climate Change Canada, I support the Canadian Wildlife Federation’s call for the creation of a national pollinator recovery action plan. Working with corporations, municipalities, provinces, territories and Indigenous Peoples, the action plan would: 1. Create a National Pollinator Monitoring Program 2. Establish habitat restoration projects in city parks, right-of-ways and along roadways to create pollinator pathways With this comprehensive approach that would include a ban on neonicotinoid pesticides, significant investment in alternative options for pest management and a robust pollinator recovery action plan, Canada could be a leader in environmentally sustainable practices. It’s critical to the survival of our pollinators, their habitat and the environment.
Petition to Justin Trudeau
Canadians for Amazon aid.
The Amazon rain forest is on fire. It produces a substantial portion of the earth's oxygen. Borders might separate us but we are one people. We must be caretakers for the earth. I'm urging our Prime Minister and all MP's to take action. To offer what aid they can to save this valuable resource.

Save the Museum Building in Old Glenora
Built in 1965, the Alberta Provincial Museum Building on 102 Avenue and 129th Street in Edmonton stands as a true gem of modernist yet historic Alberta archtecture. This beautiful strucure is adorned by fosil-rich Tyndall Limestone from the Red River Formation, extensive marble interiors and exquisite brass fittings. The South face of the build has reproductions of the First Nations petroglyphs of Writing-On-Stone Provincial park carved into the walls. The building is a cherished place for generations of Albertans and the site of many wonderful memories of learning and discovery. The grounds of the building are already a beautiful green space and the new building stands in elegant relation to the also historic Government House. Alberta Infrastructure is presently considering the demolition of this wonderful building. In a time of economic restraint we the undersigned ask Alberta Infrastucture to put aside all plans for demolition and repurpose the building preserving the cultural and archetectural integrity of our province.

Help STOP gas station development at 829 Hiawatha Line, Hiawatha First Nations, Ontario
As we are sure you are aware, there is a gas station being built on Hiawatha Line. The ongoing development of this potential gas station has caused significant damage to the wetland area where habitat and wildlife have been tramatically affected. This area is known to have diverse wildlife including various species of Turtles which are deemed at-risk and who make this wetland their home and nesting area. Not only is the wildlife negatively impacted, but the natural waterflow has been diverted which will impact the aquafer that provides water to the community. In addition to the long-lasting environmental impacts, there is also the financial harm to the community. Our community business would be at a great risk of closure due to the competing individual owned business. This would mean a loss of employment to our citizens and first-time job opportunities for our youth, and training opportunities for our summer students. We are asking for your support to protect the water, the animals, our community, our youth, and those generations to come, by signing this petition and STOP the gas station development in the best interest of our collective community. Once we have gathered signatures we will be presenting this to Chief and Council.
