Hon Doug Ford Premier of Ontario                                                                              30 October 2019 Dear Premier Ford re: Carbon tax and respecting democracy As committed climate activists, we naturally favour the use of a carbon tax as one of the many measures needed to combat the greatest threat our country/the world faces: the climate crisis.

Can the next Conservative leader steer clear of stinking albatrosses?  (Aug. 22).

Re: Can the next Conservative leader steer clear of stinking albatrosses?  (Aug. 22).While for most of us opposition to abortion and same-sex marriage suggests the stinking albatross of the ancient mariner, but Columnist Yakabuski has sadly missed the even-more-stinking-albatross issue of climate change. Not a word in his column on it, the need for a carbon tax (as a minimum […]

Dear Ms Horwath Re: New Green Democratic Deal JustEarth  members were pleased to see the plan given a strong target, at least 50% reductions (below 2005 levels) by 2030, net-zero by 2050, and given prominence at the convention.

Letter to the Editor: Lynn McDonald

When will people get it? “Energy crisis supplants environment as top concern” (June 28 2008) The energy crisis is about the environment. When we burn oil and gas we cause climate heating and other forms of pollution. They are a “bad,” but also a “good,” a valuable, finite resource, a one-time gift of Nature. What we use up now not […]

Hon Doug Ford, Premier of Ontario – 2 November 2019
