Asking Questions and Getting Answers - the Environmental Petitions Process

What are Environmental Petitions? My presentation would outline the Environmental Petitions process managed by the federal Commissioner of the Environment and Sustainable Development (CESD) that federal environmental petitions process that allows Canadian residents to ask federal ministers to respond to questions or suggestions for action on environmental issues that concern them. The presentation would provide the background and examples of environmental petitions along with tips for drafting and submitting a petition. It would be followed by a question and answer session.
