TransformTO 2050 Climate Plan - Report #2 – Climate Action for a Healthy, Equitable and Prosperous Toronto


TRANSFORMTO VOTE ON HOLD!  - ACTION NEEDED!

The TransformTO Report #2:  Climate Action for a Healthy Equitable and Prosperous Toronto, was unanimously adopted at the Parks and Environment Committee on May 4th.  And was on City Council agenda on May 24th recommended for adoption.  However due to a crowded agenda the item was held down for the next meeting on July 5/6/7.

This report which has the subtitle: Pathway to a Low Carbon Toronto details the actions required to meet the 80% GHG emission reduction target by 2050. There is no budget attached and it’s possible we could have the report adopted unanimously at Council.

HERE IS A SAMPLE LETTER FOR YOUR USE – FEEL FREE TO ADAPT.


Dear Councillor [your Councillor’s name],
 

We were happy to hear Mayor Tory speaking in support of climate action and expressing commitment to the TransformTO climate action plan that will be on the July council meeting agenda.
 

Besides fighting climate change TransformTO will create many jobs and improve the health of Torontonians. 
 

The current flooding of Toronto Island demonstrates the cost of climate inaction and the importance of doing our part with the global community to stay under the temperature rise of 2 degrees warming.
 

Can you please assure me that you will support the full implementation and funding of the  TransformTO plan when it comes to council in July?
 

Best

(your name and address)

Notes:
Toronto to stay the course on fighting climate change, even though Donald Trump won't
