Sustainable Milton hosting national webinar on climate change bill
Sustainable Milton believes Bill C-12 is a step forward, but not bold enough.
The local non-profit organization wants the government to move immediately on climate change and are inviting all Milton residents and Canadians across the country to join them for a free, non-partisan, webinar to explore strengthening Bill C12 on March 30 at 8 p.m.
The featured speaker will be Seth Klein, the author of A Good War: Mobilizing Canada for the Climate Emergency.
“Eighty-two per cent (of Canadians) say climate change is a serious problem, including 47 per cent who describe it as an extremely serious problem,” David Coletto, of Abacus Data, said in the Aug. 12, 2019 poll commissioned by Klein.
Klein served 22 years as the founding British Columbia Director of the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives, a public policy research institute committed to social, economic and environmental justice.
His book aims to send a powerful message about the creative solutions deployed by the Canadian Government in the face of World War II; turning threat into opportunity and demonstrating leadership during times of strive.
Sustainable Milton is hoping with the current state of new climate denialism, the webinar will “motivate, mobilize and equip Canadians” with the tools they need to demand the government strengthen the Canadian Net-Zero Emissions Accountability Act.
“The Bill has the potential to be the vehicle by which Canada shows bold climate leadership,” the community group said.
Sustainable Milton is a grassroots, non-profit community organization with a focus on making Milton a healthier, more adaptive, resilient and ultimately more sustainable community.
They aim to achieve this through education, local action and collaboration with like-minded organizations, the community, private businesses and local government.
