Your voice can make a big difference in Ontario’s efforts to meet our climate obligations.
Glen Murray, the Minister of Environment and Climate Change, recently released the province’sClimate Change Discussion Paper. The government is seeking public input on the province’s climate change plan in person and online.
This is your opportunity to show up and make our collective voice heard.
We had a great showing at the Climate Town Halls in Toronto last week. Greens from across the province are rallying to attend the Town Halls together and share solutions to the climate crisis.
The GPO has ramped up pressure on the Liberal government to aggressively reduce GHG emissions by pricing carbon pollution with a carbon fee and dividend policy, by investing in public transit and by implementing a green building program, among other efforts.
Here’s how you can get involved:
- Attend the Climate Town Hall closest to you and/or participate in the online Town Hall disussions, and encourage others to do the same. Find the list of Town Halls and sign up here to attend with other Greens in your area, or to become a local organizer.
- Local groups will be organizing (we’re looking for organizers!) to have a pre-town hall meeting to discuss & answer questions and come up with a local strategy.
- We have provided materials & more information on how to prepare (FAQ’s, sample comments, links, etc).
- Along with the town halls, the ministry has also opened up the Environmental Registry (#012-3452) for comments on the discussion paper. Submit your comment today. If you aren’t sure what to say, here is an abbreviated version of the comprehensive plan I will submit on behalf of the GPO. Feel free to copy and paste or better yet change as you see fit.
- Please make sure to sign and share our Carbon Fee and Dividend petition if you haven’t yet – www.gpo.ca/carbon.
I look forward to hearing about all of the great conversations and actions that arise from these town halls. Thank you for speaking out.
