Description: Guelph Chapter of Council of Canadians needs you to join us in Toronto for this important event.
This is a big chance to show strength in getting our voice heard.
We don’t have a bus going but if you can get there, do look for us and help us hold our banner high.
Canada needs a new economy that works for people and the planet.
We don’t have to choose between the economy or the environment. By taking climate action, we can create an economy that is more fair and equal and generates hundreds of thousands of good green jobs.
Climate action means protecting and expanding public control over our energy systems to ensure cheaper rates and a transition to clean energy sources. It also means building affordable, energy-efficient housing and better public transit.
This July, Toronto will host a Pan American Climate Summit and an Economic Summit where politicians will face a choice: listen to corporate leaders from across the Americas gathering to advance an economic austerity agenda that is increasing inequality and causing a climate crisis felt disproportionally in the Global South – or listen to the people.
On the eve of those summits, let’s make sure they hear our demands. By joining the march and adding your voice you can help build a justice-based transition to a new energy economy where corporate polluters pay and ordinary people benefit.
Start Time: 1:00 pm
