Prime Minister Harper, Where's My Canada?
Canada has become a country that I barely recognize. My Canada, the one that respects people and places, has vanished. Since
when did this country bully charities, trash environmental laws, thumb
its nose at the international community and silence its own citizens?

Harper took office in May of last year, His Canada starts and ends in
the Tar Sands. Whatever Big Oil wants, Big Oil gets. Fish, forests,
wildlife be damned.
millions of Canadians, I value clean air and water. I take great pride
in this country’s stunning landscapes. I believe government is entrusted
to act on behalf of its citizens. And I think every voice must count. This is My Canada.
Advocacy is working hard to restore these values that you and I
cherish—to bring back the Canada we know and love. A Canada that
protects its people from the tyranny of powerful corporate interests…
Canada that is blessed with mountains, forests, rivers, salmon,
caribou, wolves, the haunting cry of loons, the wind in the trees, and
the tranquility of the wild.
This is the Canada I stand behind and believe in. A Canada worth fighting for.
