Conservatives’ budget bill guts environmental protection

To the Editor,

Re: Rally opposes budget bill, June 5.

Canadians should be concerned about the legislation the Harper government has presently before the House, Bill C-38.

It deregulates all our environmental laws and removes habitat protection from the Fisheries Act.

Stephen Harper fails to realize that the environment is part of economy.

Conservative members of parliament need to know our  opposition to this bill.
