Federal action needed to stop Ontario's gas-power insanity
Aug 18, 2022 - Ontario is planning a huge increase in polluting gas power – from existing gas-fired plants as well as new gas plants, like Eastern Power’s proposed new 600-megawatt gas-fired power plant near Sarnia.
Increasing the use of fossil gas at a time when this province is far behind on reducing climate-damaging emissions is the definition of insanity. Yet our provincial electricity planners remain gung-ho on gas despite Premier Ford’s statement that he will not be happy until Ontario achieves a zero-carbon electricity system.
We need the federal government to use its promised Clean Electricity Standard to prohibit the building of new gas-fired power plants in Ontario.

Canada Needs A Climate Emergency Alliance
We can’t afford to wait for Trudeau to start governing like we’re in a climate emergency. Our only hope for real climate action is through an unprecedented Climate Emergency Alliance between the NDP and the Green Party. Please sign the petition.
The Green Party and NDP should form a Climate Emergency Alliance and pledge to do everything in their power to tackle the climate crisis with the urgency it demands. We're calling on both parties to work together in the next federal election to elect as many climate champions as possible. Then, join forces in Parliament to pass ambitious climate legislation.

Send Trudeau a Green Job Application
Over 10,000 people signed the petition calling on the Prime Minister to keep his promise to deliver a Just Transition Act and kickstart a green jobs revolution. But we still haven’t heard a response.
It's time to make sure Trudeau understands the urgency of the situation. Let's send him a message he can't ignore. We're flooding the PM's fax line with "green job applications" to show him that thousands of people across Canada are ready to get to work. Send yours now.
Tell Canadian banks to stop funding fossil fuel companies
Every year, Canadian banks provide tens of billions of dollars to fossil fuel companies. And some of this money is yours - tell them to stop.
Call on Trudeau to pass the Just Transition Act
Now that US President Biden has cancelled the Keystone XL pipeline, one thing is clear: the fossil fuel era is ending. Workers can’t keep waiting for help with the transition. They need action now. It’s time for Trudeau to keep his promise to workers and legislate the Just Transition Act.
Demand a world-class climate accountability law for Canada
A groundbreaking piece of new legislation - Bill C-12 - could finally help Canada meet its climate goals. But there’s one problem: Bill C-12 doesn’t actually hold government legally accountable to targets. Add your name to tell the Liberals to make the amendments that will make it a world-class climate law.
Tell Trudeau's government to strengthen the Climate Accountability Act
Canada has never met a single one of its emissions reduction targets. Real climate action means no more missed emissions reduction targets! The provisions of Bill C-12, the Climate Accountability Act, will not get us there. It does not require a progress report until 2030. Its provisions for oversight are very weak.
Send a letter to the government demanding stronger legislation.
