Canadians can lobby Obama to not exempt tarsands from environmental regulations

I saw this link mentioned by a prominent left-wing columnist at Facebook, and was very interested in it.

This is a picture of a proposed ad Avaaz.org wishes to run in the Wednesday version of the Washington Post a day before Obama is scheduled to visit Canada (to prevent eye injury from squinting, click on ad to enlarge and read in full):

Their mission statement on this ad reads as follows:

When Barack Obama visits Canada on Thursday, Harper will desperately try to push him to agree to exempt dirty tar sands oil from global regulation – effectively undermining the global deal we need to stop catastrophic climate change. We need to make it clear to Obama that Canada’s citizens do not support our Prime Minister’s climate wrecking. Scroll down to help fund an ad in the Washington Post the day before Obama leaves. There will be a lot of media attention, so our message will get heard if we can place a large ad funded by thousands of Canadians.

If you support this ad and its message, here is where you can go to contribute.
