Get on the Ottawa bus!
The Council of Canadians, along with a number of local Ottawa groups including Ottawa 350.org and Ecology Ottawa, is organizing a bus from Ottawa to New York. The bus will depart from Ottawa on Saturday, September 20 at 6:30 a.m. and leave New York on Sunday, September 21 at 5:00 p.m. (pending changes from the bus company).
The bus is now full. Suggested donation is $20, or pay what you can, to help cover the cost of the bus.
You will be responsible for securing your own accommodation.
* Please note, we will require your passport number and birth date prior to departure for the sole purpose of communicating with officials to facilitate the border crossing. We will be in touch with you soon about this.
This is an invitation to change everything.
In September, world leaders are coming to New York City for a UN summit on the climate crisis. UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon is urging governments to support an ambitious global agreement to dramatically reduce global warming pollution.
With our future on the line and the whole world watching, we’ll take a stand to bend the course of history. We’ll take to the streets to demand the world we know is within our reach: a world with an economy that works for people and the planet; a world safe from the ravages of climate change; a world with good jobs, clean air and water, and healthy communities.
