Act On Climate March - April 11, 2015 at Quebec City
The act on climate march is being organized by a Canada-wide climate coalition spearheaded by Quebec’s environmental movement and supported by organized labour, community and citizen groups, student associations, social movements and Indigenous Nations and communities.
On April 14th the Council of the Federation, consisting of the 13 heads of Canada’s provinces and territories, will meet in Quebec City. Climate change will be the only item on their agenda.
It’s time to stand up and speak with one voice: we demand climate protection and renewable energy solutions.
This is why we need you in Quebec on April 11. We need to go all-in. It’s time to act on climate.
Canadian Electoral Alliance is a volunteer group. The organization sprang from informal discussions after the last federal election resulted in a Harper Conservative majority with less than 40% of the popular vote. The “60% majority” now sees cherished institutions wrecked, environmental measures long in place eliminated, money spent on prison building (although the crime rate is falling), among them.
Our members include members of three political parties along with many with no party affiliation. People of any political persuasion are welcome. The goal is basic electoral reform, to make every vote count, to revitalize Canadian democracy.
