Tell Canada to stop methane leaks from oil and gas operations.

Tell the federal government: It’s time for Canada to become a global climate leader

Tell Canada to stop giving government money to fossil fuel companies

The Canadian government must act now and stop giving billions in handouts to coal, oil, and natural gas companies to produce and pollute more. These subsidies undermine action on climate change, increase carbon emissions, and send mixed signals to fossil fuel and renewable energy producers and users.

Tell Canada to stop methane leaks from oil and gas operations

New research shows that methane emissions from Canadian oil and gas operations are much higher than previously thought. Methane is a potent greenhouse gas with a strong effect on climate change, and these leaks have significant health effects on nearby communities. The Canadian government must act now to regulate oil and gas companies so they plug all methane leaks and stop intentionally venting methane into the surrounding environment.

Stop Highway 413 from paving over forests and farmland

Tell Metrolinx we need more evidence and less politics in transportation planning

Stop Highway 413 from paving over forests and farmland

But the proposed Highway 413 (also called the GTA West) would cut through the Greenbelt and pave thousands of acres of Class 1 and Class 2 farmland – among the best farmland in Canada. It’s time to get Ontario moving and a mega-highway isn’t the answer. Take action now to help stop Highway 413.

For too long, political games at the riding and ward levels have dominated the implementation of the Regional Transportation Plan (RTP). As a result, not enough has been done to reduce traffic congestion or to provide better options for getting around our cities and towns.

Tell Coca-Cola, Pepsi, and Nestlé to support a deposit return program in Ontario

In Ontario, big beverage companies like Coca-Cola, Nestlé, and Pepsi sell about 3 billion plastic bottles every year. Less than half those bottles get recycled. The rest – about 1.5 billion bottles – end up in landfills or littered in our environment, including the Great Lakes, where they kill fish and wildlife and threaten ecosystems.
