Will you stand up for Canadian Charities?

2015-09-14

Dear Friend, 


For decades, Canadian charities have given voice to the concerns of Canadians who want social progress, better health and a clean and safe environment. From laws banning smoking in public places and the creation of anti-drinking and driving laws, to the reversal of the depletion of the ozone layer and the curbing of the acid rain crisis -– all these achievements and more were a result of the efforts of charities and the millions of Canadians who supported them. 


It is important for a healthy democracy that charities are involved in shaping public policy.


 

We are asking all federal party leaders to fix our broken charitable laws. 


Doing so will ensure Canadians continue to have an ongoing avenue for voicing their concerns about issues that impact their daily lives.


Will you stand with us and ask for a healthy democracy in Canada?

Yours in defence of the environment and democracy,


Diane Beckett

Pollinator Progress at Heart Lake Conservation Area

Earlier this June we partnered with Toronto and Region Conservation Authority (TRCA) to host a Pollinator Party at Heart Lake Conservation Area. The weather was great and we were thankful to have the 19 volunteers from Peel region who helped with light gardening and maintenance at the Medicine Wheel Garden and meadow plots.

Before we began work on the gardens the Four Colors Drumming Circle hosted an Aboriginal Drumming Ceremony and storytelling session to welcome spring and educate people on the features of the Medicine Wheel Garden (Gitigaan Mashkiki). It was a really neat experience which engaged everyone and connected us to the work we were about to do.... Read more »
