The Petition was presented to the Canadian Parliament on 21 October 2013 by NDP MP Alex Atamanenko of the riding of British Columbia Southern Interior — see: Atamanenko website. We are very grateful to Mr. Atamanenko for doing this as certain other MPs declined or even totally ignored our approaches.
Close to 3,500 petitioners from coast to coast signed in both English and French versions. It made for a hefty bundle! Here is the text of the presentation as recorded in Hansard, the official record of House of Commons proceedings: Hansard record:
Mr. Speaker, I have well over 1,000 names of petitioners from the Slocan Valley, Grand Forks and Nelson in my riding as well as other parts of B.C., Ontario, Manitoba, Quebec and Alberta, who are concerned about what they call aerial spraying or chemtrails. They say that aerial spraying is being carried out by aerial entities at high altitudes that create long-lasting plumes. They do not act as traditional aircraft condensation trails. This is being carried out without the knowledge of the people of Canada.
The petitioners call upon the government to fully inform the people of Canada about this aerial activity occurring at high skies and to explain why it is taking place and also to cease this activity forthwith.
In addition here is the video from the parliament video service of Mr Atamanenko making the presentation. Less than a minute on YouTube: YouTube.
The Government now has 45 calendar days to respond. A petition changes nothing unless the Government acts so we shall see what is offered…
Update 28 December 2013:
Finally the government response arrived — and much as anticipated it was the usual tired old evasions… with the core of the response being that we are seeing regular aircraft condensation trails.
The text of the petition prayer was clear enough in that only some of these plumes are being seen by observers as chemtrails: …this aerial spraying is being carried out by aerial entities at high altitude that create long lasting plumes that do not act as traditional aircraft condensation trails…
Three Ministers contributed to the response: Environment, Health and Transport. For the full text of their responses please click on the image below.
|Ten years ago we organized a similar official petition, in both official languages, that was presented to the House of Commons.
No action was taken by Ottawa at that time but the evidence with respect to aerial spraying over Canada has increased and become a feature of Canadian radio talk shows, TV documentaries (including the Discovery Channel), Internet blogs, discussion forums, many thousands of Canadian YouTube videos plus “chemtrail” is now part of the lexicon recognized by the Oxford English Dictionary.
The time has come for the people of Canada to collectively demand answers from their MPs and put an end to what is going on up there in our skies!
We suggest that you deliver a copy of this petition to the local office of your MP — make certain they are aware of your thoughts and that they know of this Petition in their constituency.

The previous 2003 Petition about to be sent to Ottawa.

|Although an online petition appears to be a simple and attractive option — just click and it is done — they are virtually useless because the parties that the petitioners are attempting to influence pay little attention to anything unless it follows their official rules and contains original signatures. For more see: Canadian government petition requirements.|
Therefore we have a new public Petition here that is drawn up for presentation to Parliament by a Member of Parliament. The prayer, or request, contained in the Petition has been reviewed by Jacques Maziade, Procedural Clerk and Clerk of Petitions, House of Commons, and found to meet the official requirements.
The files, English or French, are in Adobe Acrobat, or .pdf format, for the purposes of uniformity of presentation and printing. Most computers have the file reader installed but if not the free reader is available here for download: Adobe web site
Print out or photocopy as many pages of the Petition as you think you can fill with signatures of family, friends and associates. Any number of signatures on a sheet is acceptable as all will be gathered together in total before submission. We hope to gather signatures from coast to coast. If you have any questions please e-mail us — there is a link below.
Needless to say this Petition is only for those who qualify as residents of Canada — any other signatures will be deemed invalid.
Although we have set a date of 15 May 2013 to gather the Petition together and submit it to Ottawa please send along any completed sheets whenever you have them. The specific instructions are included in a cover page in the .pdf files:
