gpo-nuclear-price-tag

Stop the war on renewable energy

The nuclear price tag will increase our electricity bills - 16.5 cents/kWh from Darlington by 2025. Better deals are out there: solar, wind and Quebec's hydro power are all cheaper.

gpo-adopt-climate-plan-1200x630-2

Ban Fracking in Ontario

We have the most fossil-fuel friendly Premier in years, who has pledged blanket support to oil and gas pipelines and repealed our climate laws. It’s just a matter of time before the oil lobby tries to frack in Ontario. And they have an ally in this Conservative government.

Big Developers don’t need keys to the city

Doug Ford is giving sprawl-hungry developers the power once again to bulldoze local planning decisions. We need real solutions to the housing crisis. We don’t need to give big developers the keys to the city.

Reject Ford’s Fuel Pump Farce

The Premier is threatening $10,000 fines on gas stations that refuse to put his anti-climate stickers on their pumps. These stickers don’t mention the carbon rebates. And they don’t mention the costs of Ford’s Do-Nothing climate policies. Say no to Ford’s fuel pump farce.

While the Premier thinks paving over farmland is the only way out of the housing crisis, Greens know there are better solutions for putting a roof over our heads. Let’s get with the times and build the affordable homes that young people, families, and seniors need.

Big money has no place in Ontario politics

Money and influence should not be able to flow freely between those in power and those with power because vulnerable groups simply cannot afford $1600 to whisper in the Premier’s ear.

Tell the Health Minister to reverse cuts to Ontario midwives

The government ending the 25-year-long funding support for the College of Midwives of Ontario. In doing so, it has severely undercut services to, for, and by women only in this highly gendered profession.
