Commission on Justice and Peace Document Archives

Dear Minister,

We write to you as you prepare for the federal government’s participation in the sessions of the

18th Conference of the Parties (COP18) to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change in Doha, Qatar, from November 26 to December 7, 2012.

Members of our communities appreciated the time you took to visit with then Moderator Mardi Tindal (United Church of Canada), General Secretary Willard Metzger (Mennonite Church Canada) and myself, Joy Kennedy, Chair of the Commission on Justice and Peace of The Canadian Council of Churches, in Durban. Likewise, we were pleased to meet with your Senior Policy Advisor, Monica Kugelmass, and her colleagues during our May 2012 Governing Board meetings in Ottawa. The Justice and Peace Commission of the Canadian Council of Churches (CCC) now requests an opportunity to continue the dialogue with you. We want to broaden the conversation and better understand your view of Canada’s role in addressing climate change.
