Environment

The Environment Group is actively following these important issues:

  1. Climate Change
  2. Enbridge and Kinder Morgan Pipelines
  3. Foreign Investment Agreement (FIPA)

“Canadian Unitarian Universalists recognize that the ecological support systems upon which all life depends are threatened by industrial civilization. Population pressures, technologies and economic systems have, while pursuing human benefits, created an environmental crisis. This is a profoundly moral issue; as a religious community it is incumbent upon us to foster the ethics and values that will ensure the continued existence of a world as beautiful and productive as that which we know as our home.”
