|As the response to youth climate strikes and recent polling demonstrates, Canadians are ready for their government to move past platitudes and accept responsibility for the emissions-induced climate crisis.
On Friday, October 4, residents of the Courtenay-Alberni riding have an opportunity to hear where their candidates stand on the issue at an all-candidates forum titled ‘Canada and the Climate Crisis.’
Mass adoption of electric transportation. Dramatic reductions in CO2. Stabilizing a rapidly changing environment. A Green New Deal for Canada’s displaced energy workers. Our safety. These are central issues requiring a transition in society that the world hasn’t faced since World War II.
But so far, no government in Canada has been willing to act at a scale commensurate with the problem.
An unprecedented coalition of Comox Valley youth, First Nations, faith-based and conservation-minded groups have come together to test our next MP’s vision on climate change.
Join the conversation at 6:30 p.m. on Friday, October 4, at the Florence Filberg Centre in Courtenay. If you wish to attend indicate you are going on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/
When: October 4, from 6:30-8:00 p.m.
Presented by a partnership of the following organizations:
Comox Valley Conservation Partnership
