Reinstate ecoENERGY and Stop Asbestos Subsidies!
Natural Resources Canada has cut the immensely popular and environmentally beneficial ecoENERGY Retrofit program, and at the same time giving the asbestos lobby another $250,000 toward promoting the use of this deadly product in developing nations!
ecoENERGY Retrofit Program: provides homeowners with financial incentives and support in upgrading the energy efficiency of buildings across Canada.
Asbestos: one of the most documented workplace hazards in Canada and the source of many health problems in the developing world.
Is this a fair tradeoff?!?
Using the form below you can write to the Minister of Natural Resources, Christian Paradis to let them know that this is unacceptable. Please note that letters are much more effective if they come in your own words. We have provided a draft for your use, but please feel free to edit! After you've sent your email, be sure to join the Facebook group in support of ecoENERGY.
