Can there be any greater threat to planet Earth than the 23,000 thermonuclear bombs currently held by the United States, Russia, and a growing list of other countries? We must end this nuclear threat for ourselves and the generations to come.

Please join me in writing to Prime Minister Harper, urging him to work for a world free of nuclear weapons.

Prime Minister Harper was presented on Friday with a letter signed by over 500 Canadians, all recipients of the Order of Canada, supporting a treaty banning nuclear weapons. The letter was delivered personally by our friends Canadian Nobel Laureate John Polanyi, Senator Douglas Roche (ret.) and Canadian Pugwash Group board member Murray Thomson.

Stephen Harper will attend a major summit of world leaders today in Washington, D.C., hosted by President Barack Obama. Progress is being made to reduce nuclear dangers, but much too slowly.

Now is the time to act. Let’s lend our support to this unprecedented effort to abolish nuclear weapons, once and for all.

Thank you for everything you do for peace.
