The conversation about the Green New Deal in Canada is just beginning, but we know that it must create millions of jobs, fight injustice and inequality, and make our communities more liveable and safe.
How could this huge transition make life better in this country? These are the conversations we’re going to be having throughout the election period and in the months to come.
A Call-Out to All of Us from The Leap, a new organization dedicated to advancing systemic change in the face of our intersecting crises of climate change, inequality, and racism

Speakers in various cities include Maude Barlow, El Jones, Naomi Klein, Avi Lewis, Kanahus Manuel, Pam Palmater, David Suzuki, Ingrid Waldron, Harsha Walia, and more.
Join us on this seven-city tour to hear from artists, activists, and community leaders about:
- How the climate crisis is impacting our communities
- Who’s responsible for the mess we’re in, and
- How the Green New Deal can build a better economy and society — and how we can make it happen.
Each evening will feature amazing speakers, art and music, and close with a “barnstorm” led by 350.org.
We’re going to fall in love with what’s possible. And we’re going to lay out our plan to win — together.
