Dear Editor:

Drought. Wildfires. Flash floods. The climate crisis has been causing chaos across Canada this summer. And who’s making a killing while the rest of us suffer? The oil and gas companies that created this mess.

Enough is enough. It’s time for our federal government to stop appeasing the fossil fuel industry and start holding them accountable. We need to see a real turning point when Parliament returns in September. Our future depends on it.

Real action on the climate emergency starts with three things: end the flow of public money to the fossil fuel industry, stop letting Big Oil influence our politics, and make polluters pay for the damage they’ve already done.

I want my MP to know this is my number one issue, and I’ll be watching closely this fall to make sure our elected officials deliver.

Frank Martens
