We are a group of concerned citizens who want to use political action to pressure the Government of Canada to hold a Royal Commission on the Environment and Health (1).
Chemicals now contaminate our air, water, soil and food. New technologies, such as those that create genetically modified organisms and nanoparticles, have developed rapidly and are used in the production of consumer goods. It is time to examine the effect these changes are having on our health and to make recommendations for action.
Help us Obtain a Royal Commission on the Environment and Health
We need your help to show politicians that Canadians across the political spectrum want a Royal Commission on the Environment and Health. As a first step, we need people from every riding across the country to fill out petitions and bring them to their MPs to present in Parliament.

(1) “Royal commissions, or commissions of inquiry, are appointed by Cabinet under the terms of the Inquiries Act in order to carry out full and impartial investigations of specific national problems… When the investigation is complete, the findings of the commission are reported to Cabinet and the Prime Minister for appropriate action.”
