Emergency in Ontario: Rally for Climate, Communities, and Nature!
Sat May 14, 2022, Toronto, ON
Ontario’s environment is under threat.
Greenhouse gas emissions are on the rise again, protections for nature are being dismantled, and mega projects are encroaching on communities.
This spring we have a chance to choose another path - one that prioritizes people and the planet.
In the lead up to the provincial election, show your support for a flourishing, low-carbon Ontario that offers good green jobs, prioritizes our collective health, and respects Indigenous rights.
Let’s come together and make it clear that we want a government that will take immediate action to bring down emissions, protect biodiversity, and build sustainable communities.
You’ll also hear a range of inspiring speakers and performers!
This is a family friendly event.
