An Open Letter to the Conservative Party of Canada

Attn: Stephen Harper
Reference: Ejection of Sierra Youth Coalition member from Conservative Campaign Rally

The Sierra Youth Coalition is a national, non-profit, non-violent, non-partisan organization that focuses on youth engagement and sustainability. We are committed to education on sustainability and promoting youth participation. In fact, in this election period we are running a non-partisan youth voting campaign in an attempt to help encourage young people to exercise their democratic rights by voting.

We are deeply concerned by news that one of our members was expelled from a Conservative Party of Canada campaign rally in Guelph on Monday, April 4, 2011. In particular, we find it worrisome that acting as a youth representative at the United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP 16) in Cancun, for an organization such as ourselves, would cause one to be ejected from any Conservative Party event. We would like an explanation of why a member of our organization was ejected from this event.
