The science is clear: It is understood that we are facing an unprecedented global emergency. We are in a life or death situation of our own making. We must act now. XR is an international movement that uses non-violent civil disobedience in an attempt to halt mass extinction and minimize the risk of social collapse. We need you – whoever you are, however much time you have – to help build a powerful movement. Our vision of change involves mass participation. Together we’re unstoppable.
The goals of XR Canada are as follows:
- WE DEMAND: TELL THE TRUTH - That the Government must tell the truth about how deadly our situation is, it must reverse all policies not in alignment with that position and must work alongside the media to communicate the urgency for change including what individuals, communities and businesses need to do.
- ACT NOW - The Government must enact legally-binding policies to reduce carbon emissions in Canada to net zero by 2025 and take further action to remove the excess of atmospheric greenhouse gases. It must cooperate internationally so that the global economy runs on no more than half a planet’s worth of resources per year
- CITIZEN'S ASSEMBLY - The creation of a Citizen's Assembly in charge of deciding the measures needed to reach goals and guarantee a just and fair transition.
