Climate Emergency Alliance

We’re in a climate emergency.  Canadian politicians are failing to lead with courage to tackle this crisis. That’s why we’re building a Climate Emergency Voters Alliance to elect climate champions in the upcoming federal election and hold them accountable after voting day.

I will join the Climate Voters Alliance

The climate emergency is at our doorstep and our politicians refuse to lead with courage to tackle this crisis. That’s why we’re building an unprecedented alliance of cross-partisan voters who will rally behind true climate champions who have a chance of unseating the climate deniers and climate delayers.

This grassroots Climate Emergency Voting Alliance is our best chance at changing the status quo of political inaction on the climate crisis. Let’s build the people power we need to elect climate champions this fall, and hold every single MP accountable to bold action on the climate crisis after the election.

Is Justin Trudeau taking climate change seriously?

No. Trudeau has taken some action on climate change but it’s nowhere near the scale of action required. Trudeau hasn’t reduced emissions. His Climate Accountability Legislation sets climate targets that are far below what experts say is Canada’s fair share. He’s broken his promise to deliver a Just Transition Act, and his government has spent billions on subsidies for Big Oil and bought a pipeline that Canada’s own federal agencies say is incompatible with climate action. Basically, Trudeau’s approach to climate action is like building half of a bridge. It’s something, but it’s not getting you where you need to go.

What happened to your campaign for a Green-NDP Climate Emergency Alliance?

A few months ago we launched a campaign calling on the Green Party and the NDP to form a Climate Emergency Alliance. Our theory, based on exhaustive research and modelling, was that only by working together could parties with stronger climate ambition than our current government win enough seats to deliver on climate.

Unfortunately, but unsurprisingly, the only people to embrace this idea were voters, grassroots party organizers and a few candidates who truly understand the scale of this crisis and the need for bold, ambitious solutions. The party leaders and their advisors put partisan politics ahead of a bold climate vision.

That’s why 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.

Instead of asking the parties to come together to elect climate champions, we’re going to do it ourselves, building a cross-Canada voting alliance to back the kind of bold, ambitious climate action we need.
