What can you do?
The ongoing use fossil fuels and the impact on climate change is a real and present danger that affects all of us. We can all participate in envisioning a more climate-conscious future.
Educate yourself. We’ve posted links to reputable news sources covering the climate emergency and impacts of fossil fuel industry, as well as research, videos, documentaries, and news reports on our website to help you do this. Check out our Quick Facts page, and Myth-Busters as well.
Email NBASGA: Subscribe with your email address for updates on info and blog posts (link on sidebar or footer), or email us if you have questions, want information, or require a speaker for an event.
Support local events. Peaceful protests and gatherings demonstrate how we feel, help us to get to know one another, give us a chance to share information and educate members of the community. Watch for event postings on social media, then invite your friends and neighbours to come with you.
Call your Municipal Council or MLA. Tell them what you value about this region and that you do not support this industry in your community. Ask what they will do to represent you. If everyone who feels strongly about this issue spoke to council members and MLAs, our government would QUICKLY get the message. Better still, make an appointment. Meet face to face. Our government has been ignoring the voice of the people.
ALL AGES ADULTS & KIDS – Write Letters: Express your views in letters (or drawings!), letters to the editor, your government officials, the Ombudsman. Submit respectful comments to online news reports.
Talk to your neighbours. Many people are unaware of the dangers associated with this industry and do not know where to get information. Do your part to encourage people to educate themselves.
Share the NBASGA website. Send the link to those who want more information; share it on Facebook.

Donate: Local volunteer group members and helpers have been contributing out of pocket to expenses for room rental, mailing, copying, and donating their time to fight this for you. There is a donation jar at every event. Please be generous.
