In September 2021, a transformative alliance of climate voters took shape. Together, we ensured that the climate emergency was the top issue for voters across the country. We elected 7 climate champions who can change the status quo of Canada’s climate inaction. And we proved that championing bold climate action is a game-changing political strategy.
Let’s remember that Trudeau called this election because he was sure that he could win a majority. Given the Liberal government’s climate record, we know that would have been a devastating outcome. This election result gives our movement more power to push for a cross-partisan effort to tackle the climate emergency. And we have no time to waste.
Sign up to join us to keep the pressure up in support of bold, transformative climate action that leaves no one behind.
Thanks for taking action! we will be in touch with more information about how you can get involved.
On September 20th 2021, we saw how powerful it is when climate voters unite behind champions who can change the status quo of climate inaction in Canada. In total, we elected 7 climate champions: Laurel Collins, Elizabeth May, Matthew Green, Leah Gazan, Peter Julian, Richard Cannings and Blake Desjarlais. In Edmonton Griesbach, climate-concerned voters across party lines united to unseat notable Conservative climate denier Kerry Diotte and elect one of our endorsed climate champions, Blake Desjarlais. Running as a first time political contender, Desjarlais built a powerful grassroots movement to connect with thousands of Albertans around a new way forward for workers and communities.
Last night, federal leaders gathered for the one and only English language debate of this election. The good news was that, for the first time ever, there was an entire debate segment about climate change. The bad news is that it missed the mark and failed to give voters the information they need, namely whether or not any of our political parties actually have a plan to meet the climate emergency.
Game Changers are activists and social movement leaders who are running for office to address the roots of the climate crisis, inequality, and colonization. If elected, these Game Changers could transform Canada’s political status quo.
On August 20th, 350 Canada announced our first set of endorsements for the 2021 election. These are our “defending champions,” the incumbent candidates who, over the course of the last parliamentary session, did the most to champion the kind of climate action we need to see.
This will be an election in the middle of a climate emergency. The stakes couldn’t be higher. That’s why I’m writing to let you know about our plan to raise the bar for climate leadership in this critical election
We’re shifting from calling for a Climate Emergency Alliance between the NDP and Greens to building a Climate Emergency Voting Alliance. Because, like all the best ideas in politics, this one is going to have to come from the bottom up.
