President and Chief Executive Officer of the Canadian Museum of Nature
Dear Ms. Beckel,
We, the undersigned, are writing to express our concern regarding the Canadian Museum of Nature's decision to accept funds from the Barrick Gold Corporation to create the "Barrick Salon" within the museum. We believe that this partnership and the public promotion of the Barrick Gold Corporation in the Museum represent clear contradictions of the museum's values and that the acceptance by the museum of money in exchange for honouring and promoting Barrick Gold will have negative consequences that extend far beyond the reputation of this museum.
Barrick Out of the Canadian Museum of Nature!
You are invited to the People’s Exhibit on Barrick Gold!
When: April 24th, 4:30 pm, Tuesday, April 24 2012
Where: In front of the main entrance of the Canadian Museum of Nature (facing Metcalfe St.)
240 McLeod St. Ottawa, unceded Algonquin Territory

On Tuesday, April 24, Ottawa’s Museum of Nature will celebrate a new partnership with Barrick Gold Corporation with the unveiling of the “Barrick Salon”. Barrick Gold is a Canadian mining company based in Toronto with horrendous records of environmental destruction, and human, labor and Indigenous rights violations around the world, including but not limiting to Chile, Argentina, Peru, Tanzania and Papua New Guinea.
