We at My Sustainable Canada urge you to sign a petition to show your support for the Canadian Environmental Network (RCEN) after its funding was suddenly and inexplicably cut by the federal government. For 34 years, the RCEN has provided Canadians with opportunities to network and exchange information about all manner of environmental issues, including those pertaining to health and energy. It also supports more than 640 environmental groups of various sizes, many of which rely on the RCEN for funding and resources. Without the RCEN, the future of these groups will be in jeopardy and cross-country communication and collaboration will be greatly hindered.
This online petition has a goal of 50,000 signatures and must be signed by November 10, 2011. Please access the petition here: http://www.petitiononlinecanada.com/petition/save-the-canadian-environmental-network-rcen/393
You can visit the RCEN website for more information: http://rcen.ca/. The RCEN is also interested in receiving donations, hearing about other funding opportunities, and/or having news of its plight and the petition communicated across the country.
We hope you will show your support for the RCEN and sign this petition as soon as possible!
