Take Action on the Climate Crisis

To the Legislative Assembly of Ontario

Whereas the UN reports that we only have 11 years to reduce carbon emissions before catastrophic climate change impacts become irreversible; 

Whereas the impact of climate crisis could undo 50 years of gains made in global public health; 

Whereas 85% of marine litter affecting beaches and waterways worldwide is made up of plastic waste material, plastics are also littering Ontario’s beaches and waterways, polluting our ecosystems and fisheries, affecting our health, 

Whereas fires, floods and tornadoes are already ripping through our communities with increased regularity; 

We the undersigned petition the Legislative Assembly of Ontario to: 

  • Declare climate emergency in Ontario 
  • Implement a complete ban on consumer single-use plastics by 2024
  • Implement Green New Deal that will cut emissions, create jobs and boost Ontario’s economy
