Your voice matters – Climate Change Consultations happening NOW

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:

  • 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.
  • 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. 

I look forward to hearing about all of the great conversations and actions that arise from these town halls. Thank you for speaking out.
