David Suzuki:
"There is a willful blindness on the part of our government that deliberately ignores the threat of climate change for all Canadians. Canada, of all industrialized nations, is at greatest risk of climate change's catastrophic consequences for our melting Arctic regions, rising marine waters along our coasts, climate dependent resources like agriculture, forestry, fisheries, tourism and winter sports, and our economic future. Thank you for putting yourselves on the line to call for action of our government."

The Fast is supported by the Council of Canadians, the Sierra Club, and 34 other organizations.
