There’s new optimism in Ottawa and across much of the country that action on the environment and climate change is possible.
- More people from across society are getting involved in climate issues;
- Canada’s recently elected government includes a federal Minister for Environment and Climate Change;
- The new government has already lifted restrictions on science communication;
- The Canadian delegation to the UN Climate Summit in Paris Nov. 30-Dec. 11 will include provincial and territorial premiers and leaders of the main political parties.
To draw attention to the opportunity for change and encourage the Canadian government to act, a coalition of environmental, community, labour and other groups is organizing 100% Possible: Marching for Climate Solutions and Justice on Sunday, Nov. 29, 2015.
Everyone is welcome to join the March from 1-4 p.m., starting at Ottawa City Hall and moving to Parliament Hill.
