Since Brazil’s far-right President Jair Bolsonaro came to power, the world has watched in horror as increasingly large areas of the Amazon forest have gone up in flames.
The fires are no accident. The Amazon is set on fire deliberately to clear land for agriculture, to meet the world’s demand for cheap meat and other products. These devastating fires are increasing as Bolsonaro slashes protections for the environment and Indigenous rights in Brazil, giving free reign to ranchers and land-grabbers to destroy the rainforest. 
Yet at this moment, the Canadian government is negotiating a Canada-Mercosur free trade deal with Bolsonaro which would massively increase meat exports from Brazil to Canada by as much as $1.8 BILLION annually.  This is the lead driver of the Amazon fires!
Our government needs to show leadership and make it clear that our country and Canadians won’t accept goods that come at the cost of Indigenous rights and rainforest destruction.
This is urgent. If deforestation and fires continue, the entire rainforest will hit an irreversible tipping point. 
Speak up for the Amazon! Tell the Minister of Foreign Affairs Marc Garneau that Canada needs to immediately halt the Canada-Mercosur free trade negotiations and speak up for Amazon protection.
We need to send a clear message that will resonate all the way back to President Bolsonaro: Canada will not make trade deals in Amazon destruction.
