Climate Emergency declarations
Toronto needs to declare a Climate Emergency. We are working with Climate Pledge Collective to get this declaration passed in Toronto. All the plans are detailed in a blog post and if you call your councillor, you can use these talking points, both are put out by Climate Pledge Collective. With people power, we can get this declaration passed.
Cities are already declaring a Climate Emergency such as Hamilton and Kingston, Ontario, over 300 Quebec municipalities including Montreal, Vancouver, Halifax, and London, England. In California, these include Berkeley (PDF) and Richmond. On the east coast, Hoboken, New Jersey, and Montgomery County (PDF), Maryland, have signed on.
