Climate consultations

The Council of Canadians St. John's Chapter encourages you to attend the climate change town hall on Tuesday, July 12 in Bonne Bay.

Town halls like this one are being held all across the country to inform the federal government’s national climate strategy, which the government has promised to release by the end of 2016.

The Council of Canadians is part of the People’s Climate Plan, a coalition of groups working to make climate action work for all of us. We are facing a climate crisis and we all have the responsibility to act. We need a national strategy that aligns with the science of climate change, builds a 100% renewable energy economy and is justice-based. Read more about the principles of the People’s Climate Plan.

We hope that you will bring your own local vision for the People’s Climate Plan to these consultations. Many people across Canada have said “no” to any new pipelines and have shared the ideas outlined in the Leap Manifesto.

We hope you will take part in a climate consultation to ensure that your voice is heard.
