Climate emergency? What climate emergency? Ontario Premier Doug Ford and his Conservatives show little or no sign that they are concerned
Last week (during the first week of November), Ontario Greens presented their plan for climate action to the world, at COP26 in Glasgow.
Deputy Leader Dianne Saxe joined Kitchener Centre Green MP Mike Morris for a talk about _Roadmap to Net-Zero: The Ontario Greens’ Climate Plan. and why it is critically important that we reduce carbon emissions now.
BUT DOUG FORD’S GOVERNMENT DOESN’T CARE ABOUT ENVIRONMENTAL ACTION.
Just days after (Ontario) Minister of the Environment, Conservation and Parks, David Piccini, returned from COP26, Ford presented a plan to build more highways in Ontario, which will put more cars on the road and drive up emissions.
Tell Ford we need climate action now
Saxe told COP26 attendees that if we don’t get serious about climate, the science says we’ll be facing more chaos, bigger challenges and much more suffering in the future.
Ontario Greens are working hard to create workable solutions to the biggest problem of our lifetime, but instead of taking it seriously, Ford wants to line the pockets of his developer friends.
WE NEED YOUR HELP TO STOP FORD’S ENVIRONMENTAL ASSAULT.
Hundreds of protesters rallied at Queen’s Park on the weekend. Just like you, they’re concerned that Ontario isn’t doing enough to combat climate change. To get Ford to take action, we need to make our voices heard.
Join us in telling Ford to take action and make a plan now to reduce emissions in Ontario, before it’s too late.
