Citizens for Public Justice (CPJ) staff and their families joined the Ottawa march, while CPJ members turned out at events in Vancouver, Edmonton, Calgary, Winnipeg, Toronto, Waterloo and Halifax. It was a momentous occasion that offered a welcome sense of togetherness, suggesting that many believe in an alternative way forward, and we can have hope for the future.
CPJ believes that every Christian is called to care deeply about God’s creation, just as God cares for each and every one of us. We have a responsibility, first and foremost, to demonstrate our respect for life and our love for the Earth. If human activities cause the warming of the planet, which in turn drives species towards extinction, intensifies natural disasters, harms human health and threatens the well-being of our children and grandchildren, then it inevitably becomes an issue of life and love.
