Estimates are that between two and three hundred thousand walked in the People’s Climate March in New York City last Saturday.

During this new Parliamentary session, we can urge federal party leaders and Conservative cabinet ministers to take powerful action on climate change. This would be an effective follow-up to the huge NYC march.

Canadians of all socio-economic and political stripes are counting on leaders to act. We can all help build a chorus so loud that they can’t help but hear.
