Tell your MP to get to work for our environment
Politicians promised to tackle key environmental issues when they asked for our vote during the federal election.
Now it’s time to hold them to their word.
Canadians chose to not give any one party a majority in Parliament. This sends a clear message: MPs need to work together across party lines to build a safer, healthier future for us all.
To put Canada on a more sustainable path, all parties must work together and take the following immediate actions:
Reintroduce and pass legislation to strengthen the Canadian Environmental Protection Act and recognize your right to a healthy environment
Ban the export of thermal coal by 2023, including American coal, from Canadian ports
Introduce a corporate climate accountability law that requires Canadian companies, banks and financial institutions to align their business with the Paris Agreement goal of limiting global warming to 1.5 degrees
Introduce legislation to tackle systemic environmental racism and develop a strategy to address environmental justice in Canada
The next six months will be a crucial test of this government’s ability to make real progress on the environmental crises we face today.
Take action today. Call on your MP to advocate for these environmental priorities in Parliament.
