From the NDP in my gmail;

Thank you for your previous email expressing your concern for the
environment.

Parliament passed our Climate Change Accountability Act (Bill C-311)
earlier this month. All parties came together to get this done. Now, it
requires the Senate`s approval.

We need your help to make sure enough Senators vote for C-311. Please
see the attached sample letter and a list of targeted Senators to
contact. It is important that you encourage them to respect the will of
Parliament and concerned Canadians like you.

For more information on the status of Bill C-311, please visit:

Again, I appreciate your desire to ensure that all Canadians have clean
air to breathe, clean water to drink, and a clean environment to live,
work, and play. Feel free to share my email with your contacts.

All the best,

Jack Layton, MP (Toronto-Danforth)
Leader, Canada’s New Democrats

Sample Letter;

XXXXXX, 2010

To: XXXXX

Senate of Canada

Dear Senator XXXX,

Like many Canadians, I have been watching with great interest the process of Bill C-311—the Climate Change Accountability Act. I was very encouraged to see our federal parties work across party lines to pass this important bill in the House of Commons. I am writing to you to ask that you do the same.

Canadians agree that climate change is the defining challenge of our time. Without urgent action, the consequences for our children and grandchildren will be dire. That is why we all have a responsibility to act. The Climate Change Accountability Act is Canada’s best hope for science-based reductions to greenhouse gas emissions, as well as a mechanism to ensure these targets are met.

I respectfully encourage you and your Senate colleagues to pass Bill C-311 without delay. A majority of MPs representing a large majority of Canadians have shown the urgency of the situation by coming together and passing this bill. If we are going to put Canada back on track for a cleaner, greener future, the Senate must do the same. Canadians hope for nothing less.

Sincerely,

XXXXXX
