Rising Up For Climate Action!

RISING UP FOR CLIMATE ACTION!

Wow! What an amazing turnout Friday! Toronto stepped out – 20,000 strong! Canada turned out 800,000 strong – and the world turned out – 7 million strong – to call for urgent climate action NOW.

We did it – together. Now we need to build on that message to keep the pressure on politicians – and to continue to build our movement. JOIN US THIS WEEK!

***************************************************************************************

THIS WEDNESDAY OCTOBER 3RD THERE WILL BE ENVIRONMENTAL DEBATES IN MORE THAN 100 RIDINGS ACROSS THE COUNTRY. We need a HUGE turnout – to demonstrate to local politicians running for office that ENVIRONMENT is an absolutely key concern for our vote.

We need to show up, speak up, and step up for the changes needed for a regenerative future.

www.100debates.ca will tell you where the debate is in your riding. Most are on Oct 3rd.

ClimateFast volunteers are working on the debates in Toronto St. Paul’s, Scarborough-Guildwood, and Etobicoke Centre on Oct 3rd and Parkdale-High Park which is on Oct 2nd.

Let’s pack the debates!
