As Parlament returns this fall, let's make sure that a green and just recovery is a top priority.
This is a pivotal moment - we know that powerful forces (including some of Canada's top polluters) are lobbying federal officials to ask for bailouts and rollbacks on rules that protect our health and the environment.
Decision makers need to hear from citizens like you. Join communities across the country in calling for a recovery that puts people and the planet before corporate profits.
Here are some actions you can take right now to help push for a green and just recovery:
Send a message to Minister of Finance, Chrystia Freeland
Deputy Prime and Minister of Finance Chrystia Freeland holds a lot of power when it comes to determining which way the COVID-19 recovery steers our country. We are calling on her to commit to implementing a green and just recovery in Canada. Send Minister Freeland a message demanding a recovery plan that puts people and the planet first.
