The United Church of Canada has been advocating for a Canadian Ombudsperson for Responsible Enterprise (CORE) "with teeth" for years. Yet, as this news report shows, the Canadian government caved to mining industry pressure and ignored and kept secret its own report showing how to empower the Ombudsperson with the tools it needs to be effective.
Join our partner, the Canadian Network on Corporate Accountability, in taking action now! Tell the government that a powerless CORE is unacceptable and that impacted communities can wait no longer for access to justice. You can also share this prayer on your social media channels.
