Prime Minister Stephen Harper of Canada
Canadian Prime Minister Harper downgraded the status of the humpback whale over the Easter weekend from "threatened" to a species of "special concern." Given their habitat directly along the proposed Northern Gateway fossil fuel tanker route there is great cause to believe that this action was ultimately politically motivated to remove one of the major environmental obstacles to the pipeline-to-tanker route opposed by the majority of British Columbians. We call on the world this Earth Day to stand up for the humpbacks and tell Prime Minister Stephen Harper to reinstate the whales endangered status. Your voice and your signature can save these precious creatures from extinction!
