‘It even shows oil being extracted by blowing up a valley using glowing red bombs that look like something out of an action movie.

‘Tell Netflix this is unacceptable – send a letter to Lindsey Scully, Netflix Canada’s Head of Communications!’

‘Our children are the key to the future – but they can’t succeed if they’re filled with misinformation.’

The campaign ends with: ‘Stand up for our kids – tell Netflix this is just plain wrong!’
