The Extension Cord Protest- La Manif des rallonges

Our provincial government is trying to burn more and more gas to power the province but is ignoring the idea of importing clean power from Quebec. This is completely unacceptable during a climate crisis. So, enter The Electrical Cord Protest! We’ll link Ontario and Quebec as we demonstrate and involve our community. 

Notre gouvernement provincial essaie de brûler de plus en plus de gaz pour alimenter la province, mais ignore l’idée d’importer de l’énergie propre du Québec. C’est totalement inacceptable en période de crise climatique. Alors, voilà La Manif des Rallonges! Nous établirons un lien entre l’Ontario et le Québec au fur et à mesure que nous protestons et impliquerons notre communauté.

WHEN: Saturday, November 19th 1:00 pm-2:30 PM

WHERE: Booth St and the Ottawa River Pathway

Speakers will include: 
Angela Bischoff, Director of the Ontario Clean Air Alliance and 
Joel Harden, MPP for Ottawa-Centre.

There will be warm beverage and food.
Bring your extension cords as a sign of protest.
