5 MINUTE URGENT ACTION! BUDGET LETTERS NEEDED!!!!

Dear friends for climate justice,

Thanks to the many of you who have sent letters to your Councillor and the Mayor over the last week. The letters are coming in –but we need a last-minute surge. Why is this important?

Did you know that each letter is considered to represent the view of hundreds of people? That’s because it’s rare for people to take the time to contact their councillor directly about an issue that concerns them. Mayor Tory hasn't gotten the message that we are in a climate emergency. So let's let him know! 

So please send a letter to the Mayor and to your Councillor and consider phoning as well.The sample letter is at this link: www.climatefast.ca/carbonfreeTO

Mayor Tory: 416-397-2489, mayor_tory@toronto.cacouncillor_lastname@toronto.ca - and please bcc climatefast@climatefast.ca.

THIS HAS TO HAPPEN TOMORROW! Council meets on Thursday to approve the budget. There will be motions brought forward to restore funding to the Environment and Energy Division and your letter will help push for the support needed for these to pass. 

Councillor and mayor contact info is on the right-hand side of the carbonfreeTO page. You may have received a separate email with a draft letter for your individual councillor, or please customize the one on the website.

 

Let’s use people power to send a message to City Hall!
