What Can I Do?

When you feel strongly about an issue you don’t take “no” or “it’s a done deal” for an answer.

  1. Research the issue.
  2. Create and/or sign a petition.
  3. Be heard – tell your friends, talk to your local politicians (municipal, provincial and federal) and newspapers.
  4. Write letters to the Prime Minister, the Premier, federal and provincial Ministry of Natural Resources, Ministry of the Environment, Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs.  Write to the proponent, the newspapers and local organizations.  Spread the word.
  5. Encourage your local social group to get involved (church, Probus, Lions, fishing, snowmobiling, curling, hockey, whatever you enjoy).
  6. Educate and encourage local students and schools.  After all we are fighting for our children’s future.
  7. Contact similar activist groups for support and expertise.  There is strength in numbers.
  8. Join or setup a Facebook page.
  9. Follow or setup a Twitter account.
  10. Create a list of objectives and join/setup a Call to Action campaign.
  11. Attend or host a fund-raising/social awareness event.
  12. Join or establish an advocacy group.
  13. Post a sign.
  14. Distribute posters.
  15. Keep an eye on Ontario’s Environmental Registry (www.ebr.gov.on.ca) and comment whenever there is a relevant application.
  16. Donate your time, your expertise or your money.
  17. Volunteer.
  18. Join another supporting group:
