49 years into the #NoPickeringAirport movement, the single most important thing you can do is, write a letter to your MP. It doesn’t need to be complicated or long, it simply needs to be sent…from you!
When local student, Max Brazier, came to us asking how he could help our cause with his community volunteer hours, we collaborated on a couple of fresh new letter templates to spur on a letter-writing campaign. Max is passionate about sustainability and the role of politics in taking meaningful climate action. He’s hoping others will follow his lead and reach out to their federal politicians.
You can find the two new letters below:
#1: General letter to your MP opposing plans for an airport in Pickering
#2: Letter with youthful voice, focusing on climate change and Ottawa’s obligation to future generations
Please take advantage of these new templates and send a letter today. Cut and paste, or use them as inspiration to craft one of your own. No matter what you decide, don’t forget to personalize it and add why this cause matters to you, your family, and/or your community. After you hit send, tell us about it. Share your letters with us and inspire others to write one of their own.
