Canada voted worst in the world?!

Hello Friends,
My sincere apologies for cross-posting.

Right now, a major UN summit in Bali has just a few days left to hammer
out an agreement on stopping catastrophic climate change. But instead
of helping out, Canada is actually sabotaging the talks! On Saturday,
experts gave us the global “fossil” award for being the worst country
in the world on climate change.


There’s still a few days left to save Canada’s reputation — and the
climate — but we need a massive democratic roar to remind our Prime
Minister what Canada is all about, and stop him from blocking the world
at Bali. Click below to sign the petition, which will be advertized
with the number of signatures in an ad campaign across Canada this
week. The goal is to get 25,000 people to sign in the next 3 days —
before the ads run. After you sign, forward this email to all your
friends and family right away:

Prime Minister Harper’s short-sighted, undemocratic and big oil-driven
policy on climate change is damaging the world and destroying our image
as a good country. We’re supposed to be the nice guys, who try to do
the right thing in the world.

The vast majority of Canadians are hopping mad on this issue — we can
win this. We just need to show Harper how serious we are that he change
course. Sign up now and forward this email to everyone you know – we’ve
got just 3 days to hit 25,000 signatures!

Thanks for you help!
