My fellow Canadians - when it comes to climate change, one of the most important things each of us 18+ can do is VOTE, and our election is TOMORROW. If you have any q's or doubts, pls use the resources in this thread to inform your strategic vote. Onward! #canpoli #ClimateAction
🇨🇦 is uniquely vulnerable to climate impacts. From sea level rise that threatens coastal cities to bigger wildfires, more intense floods + thawing permafrost, we're all affected. And our cumulative carbon ems? We're the 9th biggest emitter in the WORLD.
But one party couldn't care less: the @CPC_HQ. Their climate plan has all the right words in it and it looks very nice. But when you get down to brass tacks, as @MarkJaccard shows here, their plan will actually INCREASE emissions rather than decrease them. policyoptions.irpp.org/magazines/augu…
@CPC_HQ @MarkJaccard I want to be 100% clear that I'm not saying this because I am anti-Conservative. I've reached out to @CPC_HQ leaders--as have many, many of my colleagues--and with one exception (Lisa Raitt) we have just been met with a stone wall. I truly hope that will change in the future.
@CPC_HQ @MarkJaccard What we do have, though, are four parties that all have climate plans that will cut carbon: @liberal_party, @NDP, @CanadianGreens and yes even the @BlocQuebecois. How do they stack up? @andrew_leach and I rate them here: macleans.ca/society/enviro…
@CPC_HQ @MarkJaccard @liberal_party @NDP @CanadianGreens @BlocQuebecois @andrew_leach .@CitizensLobbyCa created this helpful chart where they compare the policies of our four main parties #canpoli
@CPC_HQ @MarkJaccard @liberal_party @NDP @CanadianGreens @BlocQuebecois @andrew_leach @CitizensLobbyCa And four smart young students from @uofg have teamed up to rate our parties' climate plans in 19 different categories. Check it out here! nationalobserver.com/2019/06/05/new…
@CPC_HQ @MarkJaccard @liberal_party @NDP @CanadianGreens @BlocQuebecois @andrew_leach @CitizensLobbyCa @uofg I wish we had a plan we could rate A+ for both ambition (can they meet our Paris target) + feasibility (will their policies meet their stated goal). We don't, yet. But we do have a choice: to cut carbon or to increase it. So please, vote smart. Here's how: strategicvoting.ca/alldistrictsfe…
@CPC_HQ @MarkJaccard @liberal_party @NDP @CanadianGreens @BlocQuebecois @andrew_leach @CitizensLobbyCa @uofg Our country is warming twice as fast as the rest of the world. It's time to fix that. #WeTheNorth #ClimateAction
