1- Canadians need climate action that is national, provincial and local. Always #VoteForClimate.
2- We want Canada to be a leader with an immediate moratorium on all new fossil fuel projects- including those under construction like the Trans Mountain Pipeline and Bay du Nord. Justin Trudeau, end fossil fuel subsidies and put a real cap on emissions in the race to a zero carbon future!
3- We must invest in renewable local energy and affordable electric transit that works for all.
