The following is a message to the diocese from the Chair of the Diocesan Eco-Justice Unit, the Reverend Margaret Marquardt.
Greta Thunberg has repeated over and over again to listen to the science.
So here we have it.
The Eco-justice Unit of the diocese encourages dialogue in parishes about the climate emergency.
The Canadian government stated in June 2019 that we are in a climate emergency in the world.
It would be thoughtful for those who would choose to do so either individually or collectively as a parish to write to the Prime Minister and press upon the government our concern as Anglican Christians that Canada be a leader in the world in addressing this climate emergency.
Listen to the science. Listen to the vulnerable ones of earth who are already enduring tremendous suffering because of climate change.
It’s always worthwhile to cc one’s own member of Parliament.
