Climate Crisis is Costing Us Billions of Dollars Alone, and Where Is Ford Government on Addressing It?
News from the Green Pary of Ontario

The climate crisis is making life more unaffordable in Ontario.
That’s why our leader Mike Schreiner asked the Financial Accountability Office to prepare a report laying out the true cost of climate impacts on public infrastructure. Last week, it was finally released.
And the report is clear: The climate crisis is costing Ontarians billions of dollars. Climate-related damage to transportation infrastructure alone will cost us $14 billion by 2030.
Record-breaking rainfall, heatwaves and other extreme weather events will cost up to $332 billion by 2100.
Within the space of a few days last month, Hurricane Fiona and Hurricane Ian demonstrated how extreme weather can spell financial disaster.
Our roads, bridges and railways are simply not ready to withstand the hammer blows of climate change.
Tell Doug Ford to Act Now !
The cost of living in Ontario is already too high. We need to take action now to ensure that our province continues to be a safe and affordable place to live.
Help us call on the Premier to urgently create a dedicated climate adaptation fund to make Ontario’s public infrastructure climate-ready.
It’s the morally and fiscally responsible thing to do.
