What are our goals?
Power Shift Canada Demands:
We expect our political leaders to listen
to what science is telling us and act
immediately to pass the necessary
climate and energy policies for all
Canadians now and in the future. We
call upon our government for immediate
action to reduce emissions, create good,
green jobs, and make us proud of
our nation’s efforts to tackle the global
climate and economic crises. We
demand that Canada do our
part to build and ratify a strong and
progressive global climate agreement in
December 2009.
