Climate September

What do we want? A safe climate. When do we want it? Now.

This is our chance.

September 2023 saw many like-minded people, including Ecojustice and its supporters, marching to end fossil fuels.

Burning coal, oil, and gas has led to the extreme weather, deadly heat, and record-breaking wildfires we’ve seen in the last few years.

But it doesn’t have to be this way.

We can power our lives using what’s naturally abundant, all while lowering the cost of our energy bills.

Canada is a world leader in renewables. Now we just need to break up with the fossil fuel industry — for good.
