We have an important opportunity to give feedback to the Federal Government.
Climate Plan Consultations: Let’s Be Louder Than The Fossil Fuel Industry
The federal government’s consultation about its climate plan is about to close - on January 14th! Have you had your say? If no, check out this portal from Lead Now that has made it easy for you to send a message.
A personalized message is more impactful than a form letter. For this reason, we encourage you to draft your own message for the consultations. Here are the key points from Lead Now that we support:
Spend what it takes to tackle the climate emergency, by investing in a climate safe economic transformation at a minimum of 2% of GDP per year
Stop expanding fossil fuel projects, e.g. cancelling the Trans Mountain and Coastal GasLink pipelines.
End all fossil fuel subsidies.
Funding for training and low-carbon job creation to prepare workers, including those who work in oil and gas, for a new and more inclusive economy.
Empowering and resourcing local and Indigenous communities to lead their transitions.
Climate Messengers have also created a toolkit for people who want to provide input.
