Join CSI in calling for City of Toronto to declare a climate emergency

CSI is one of 47 organizations who sent an open call to Toronto City Council to declare a climate emergency and commit to accelerated action on climate change. We’ll need your help making sure City Council votes in favour.

The message read:

“We, concerned organizations, call on Toronto Mayor John Tory and Toronto City Council to formally declare a climate emergency. Furthermore, we call on you to commit to, and rapidly implement, clear and specific actions to reduce emissions in the near-term and protect residents—especially those most at risk—from climate-related harms while making critical investments to maximize the health, environmental, social, and economic benefits of a transition to a zero-carbon city.”

You can quickly and easily tell your City Councillor to support a Climate Emergency declaration that includes a commitment to actions in the next 2 years. You don’t even need to know your Councillor’s name, just your own mailing address!

Need some inspiration to take action? Meet 15-year-old Anishinabek Nation Chief Water Commissioner Autumn Peltier. She is at the UN Climate Action Summit this week in New York to meet with other like-minded youth about climate change. These young activists around the world need our local support. Click here to email your City Councillor right away.
