CITIZENS UNITED FOR A SUSTAINABLE PLANET

Dear Minister Kent,

We have recently formed a new group in Thunder Bay, Citizens United for a Sustainable Planet. Our vision is a commitment to “engaged communities, a healthy environment, social and ecological justice, and a participatory democracy.” Our mission is to “create public awareness and engage citizens everywhere to require our governments and economic institutions to act in the best interests of ecological resilience and social justice.”

We are writing to support Matawa First Nations call for a Joint Review Panel Environmental Assessment, rather than the currently designated Comprehensive Study, for the Cliffs Chromite Project. More »
