The 2021 federal election will be pivotal in determining the future we want for our families, communities, and the planet.
The climate and nature crises are here. Together, we have witnessed a devastating heat dome shatter temperature records and wildfires tear through forests across western Canada, claiming hundreds of lives and destroying homes and wildlife habitats. Now more than ever, we need to act.
We know that, like COVID-19, climate change and environmental degradation will continue to disproportionately impact people of colour and low-income communities. We need a government that we can trust to address the systemic inequalities that perpetuate environmental racism and harm some of Canada's most vulnerable residents.
The good news is that solutions exist, and together we can rebuild a more just society that is better for our health, the economy, and nature. We have an opportunity to invest in nature-based solutions to make our communities and ecosystems more resilient to climate change. As we recover from the pandemic, we can choose to invest in a green and just recovery.
Any government that represents us must rise to the challenge of building an equitable, carbon-neutral, nature-positive future for all. And it all starts with your vote.
Casting your ballot sends a clear message about the world you want, today and in the future. With it, you hold decision-makers accountable for their promises and help advance the issues that matter most to you.
Stand with us and tell federal party leaders that you will vote for a government that will uphold environmental protection, social justice, and Indigenous rights.
This letter will be sent to your local fall election candidates as well as all major party leaders.
