As you know, the Canadian Government has adopted the same weak greenhouse gas reduction targets as the Harper Government, and what’s more we are on course to miss those targets by 30%. A recent report by the environmental commissioner of Canada strongly criticized government inaction on climate change. Here is an article about the report: https://www.cbc.ca/news/politics/canada-climate-change-report-plan-risks-1.4594971

The situation is urgent and we would like to invite to you take action. The NDP has some great plans and we need you to make them work!

On 10th February 2019, I am organizing a workshop to write motions and bills that I will submit to the House of Commons.

To participate, please register using this link: https://goo.gl/forms/eu3iOFWZqki8ioBY2

You don’t need to be an expert to particpate! We will send you relevant documents before the event so you can read up and come prepared with your ideas. On the day of the workshop there will be working tables, each with an expert on your chosen subject, as well as an expert on writing motions and bills for parliament.

Our aim is to help citizens learn about these subjects and influence their future. It’s a chance for citizens to take part in their democracy.

Here is the choice of subjects:

  • Programmed obsolescence : there are currently no regulations / laws in Canada
  • Greenhouse gases : Government targets and programs
  • Green jobs-energy transition  : development possibilities in Canada how to help workers change to green jobs
  • The circular economy : giving value to what we throw away and reducing our use of natural resources
  • Waste recovery : the need for recycling centres and stricter rules in Canada
  • Textiles : currently, 85% of the clothes we buy end up in landfill. There are no regulations on textile waste in Canada.
  • Building codes : a new Canadian building code is expected in 2022. What should it include?

For more information or to register for this activity, please call my assistant Katherine Massam at 450-371-0644.
