Letter to the Honourable Rona Ambrose, Minister of the Environment

The Canadian Religious Conference, of which IBVM is a member, speaks out about the Canadian government's lack of appropriate and substantive action to address issues of climate change and its effects worldwide. They wrote "Cutting green house gas emissions is for us a spiritual as well as a moral and ethical issue." IBVM recently committed itself to endorse the Earth Charter, "a declaration of fundamental principles for building a just, sustainable, and peaceful global society for the 21st century." "Our Institute is called to sharpen its engagement with the Church and world." (GC06, Call 3)
