Call your MP to host a climate town hall
The Trudeau Government has signed the Paris climate deal and announced public consultations for a National Climate Strategy. Central to this consultation process is an online portal where people can submit their thoughts on this strategy.
While this is a great first step in consulting the public, online portals are not enough. The Government has to show its commitment to climate by hosting in-person town halls where people can voice their thoughts and stories and know they are being heard.
Some MPs have committed to host a town hall in their riding to listen to their constituents, but most haven’t. To ensure everyone across Canada has a chance to attend an in-person town hall, we need to encourage individual MPs to host a town hall in their ridings.
That’s why we need you to call your MP and ask them to host a climate town hall. MPs are first and foremost representatives for your riding, so If enough of us call our MPs they’ll feel pressured to host a climate town hall to listen to their constituents.
