26 days until ClimateFast in Ottawa.

COUNTDOWN TO
CLIMATEFAST IN OTTAWA
SEPT 28 - OCT 2, 2014

This is the third year that ClimateFast will stand and fast on Parliament Hill. You will find us on the Hill every day from September 28th to October 2nd appealing to Canada's policy makers to pledge to work in Parliament to

  • end fossil fuel subsidies
  • put a price on carbon
  • support the development of a renewable energy plan for Canada

Our action is a peaceful and hopeful one. We aim to inspire people and decision makers in Canada to find the courage and wisdom to press for, and put into action, the urgent measures needed to assure a safe, future climate for all.

ClimateFast is organizing and participating in additional events during our stay in Ottawa. (See our Calendar for dates and times.)
