Bill C-311 to be voted on Wednesday April 14 – The Climate Change Accountability Act – If you care about the Environment You can have Your Say Canada – Cornwall Ontario.

Cornwall ON – We get a lot of emails and calls here at The Cornwall Free News and this Wednesday a vote is taking place in Parliament regarding Bill C-311 which is the The Climate Change Accountability Act.

The Harper Government is against this piece of legislation; although supported by opposition parties, a lot of activists are concerned on how solid Liberal support is so they’re asking people to contact their MP’s and other mucky muks to make sure the vote gets out.

Here is how you can help:

1. Join the Climate Action Network Canada Facebook page to take part in future events like this, if you have not done so already.

3. See below for a sample text that you can use in a phone call or email, along with the contact information for Prime Minister Harper, Environment Minister Jim Prentice, Liberal Leader Michael Ignatieff and Liberal Environment Critic David McGuinty.
————————————————————

Hello [Mr. Ignatieff, Prime Minister Harper, Minister Prentice, Mr. McGuinty, your MP],

I am calling to urge you and your parties to support the passage of Bill C-311, entitled An Act to ensure Canada assumes its responsibilities in preventing dangerous climate change (the “Climate Change Accountability Act”) when it is voted on in the house on Wednesday April 14th.

This bill contains targets for greenhouse gas pollution reduction that are in line with what scientists tell us is needed to avoid dangerous climate change. Canada must do its fair share in the global effort to combat climate change, and protect the most vulnerable people in the world from the consequences.

Studies have shown that Canada can reach science based targets by 2020 while still growing the economy by 2% a year and creating over one million new jobs.

All parties in Canada’s parliament should work together and pass this essential piece of legislation.

I would like to see my government showing leadership on climate change, so please vote in favour of the Climate Change Accountability Act.

Thank you,

[Your name]

I’ve done my bit; I’ve sent a note to each of the gentlemen above including our Conservative MP, Mr. Guy Lauzon. I urge you to take a moment to let our government representatives know what direction you would like them to take in this very important matter. Collectively we can make an impact. Thank-you!

I’ve done my bit too and have included our MP Guy Lauzon too.
One question in my mind is that why are we being advised of this three days before the vote in Parliament?

Don’t waste your time and breath trying to save this sin cursed earth – it is slated to be burned up! Not by a nuclear holocaust, or even global/climate change, but by the judgment of God – “But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up. Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, what manner of persons ought ye to… Read more »

Now that’s a good question Stan. I got this news this morning and published it pronto. We work fast here at The Cornwall Free News.

I might be out of line here, but does anybody know Pastor Tom well enough to maybe convince him to get some help with his problem? He seems to be getting a little crazier with each post.

Global warming and cooling are related to sun spot cycles and solar cycles. We’ve know this at least since 1600 AD. This is about taxation and shifting money and power around. What kind of spray bottle you use or how many logs you toss in a campfire will not influence geo-thermal reactions, volcanoes or the Van Allen belt. Did everyone burn their grade seven science books?

Don’t you know Mr. Smith that environmentalism is not based upon real facts of science. The environmentalist feel that their god – Mother Earth is in danger, so they must do whatever they can to save her. Mother Earth’s religious devotees will lie, tell half truths, and even spread misinformation in order that their great goddess will survive. Mass delusion, mass hysteria, and mass propaganda! As we take a moment to venerate environmentalism two greatest prophets – Al Gore and David Suzuki (pause – that’s enough), when and where can we find these two men ever using science as it… Read more »

The Scripture reference for the above book of Acts quote is Acts 19:27-29, 34. Just in case you wanted to know.

I can think of one reason Stan why we have only 3 days on this. Because they want to push something through fast. If not this, look for any hidden agenda’s! Bet you something else passes at the same time that they hope this will help cover up.

Pastor Tom, David Suzuki Rules!

Stan…well at least you heard the news here at Cornwall Free News. I will assume that you read and listen to other news media such as our local radio stations, TV stations and our local daily and weekly newspapers. Did they not mention anything about it?

every day Harper’s denial of reality sinks Canada deeper in the tar sands.

Tom, the environmental movement has been split and fractured to render it useless or of use only to the big machine that wrecks the environment. This happened to the womens’ movement as well. The womens’ movement wasn’t allowed to continue until it was understood they meant only rights for white middle and upper class women. It had to be understood that they didn’t mean rights for native women or black women. Al Gore is not a science man and his crap doesn’t stand up to critique. Suzuki is lately allowing politics to cloud his rational for facts. Tom is right… Read more »

Does anyone else see the humour in the pastor saying that someone else’s religion “is not based upon real facts of science.”?

Furtz, I find humour in everything Mr Tom says. I’m not even sure where he came up with the idea that environmentalists need a god. Let’s not forget that David Suzuki is”not using science as it was meant to be used”. I wonder what science was meant to be used for? I was hoping for an explanation from his 7th grade science book, but he kind of left me hanging…what was it in grade 7 that disproves enviromentalism, I wonder? I do agree that Al Gore is a bum, but perhaps a bum ahead of his time? He IS a… Read more »

Rodney, Pastor Tom is rehearsing for Just for Laughs. If you egg him on he might just make it to Broadway, or maybe Vegas.

The Son of God was so beautiful today, did anyone get outside to enjoy it before it set in the west? I mean that’s factual, it rises every day, and sets every night. 😉

Just received news from Toronto stating that the Liberal Party would be supporting the B-311 vote today. Check the news this evening.

Stan, did you ever end up getting a reply to your message to Lauzon?

grimalot, yes, surprisingly enough, I did receive an answer from our wondrous MP Guy Lauzon.

hey pastor,

S’mee: Do you know where that verse is found? And what is the rest of the verse – you may be misapplying it by not reading it in it’s context.

grimalot

Sounds like it is in perfect context and applied properly.. Unlike yourself pastor Tom, the rest of us don’t have time to constantly think or dream about the other 99% of the obscure verses in the bibles, when we could be thinking/dreaming about better things instead…

I like to hang out with JC and his Dad when they are in good humour. God sure likes to tell a joke. Just don’t get their pet lamb all riled up – its a terror.

Pal of God, Grimalot, Antipasta (I still have problems with that handle), and S’mee… According to our resident spiritual leader, his god seems to be really pissed off at most of us. Google “Kissing Hanks Ass”. It’s hilarious, and sums up the insanity pretty nicely.
