Climate change and biodiversity loss is the number one threat facing our species and planet, and we need to make it the #1 issue this election.
For those living in London Ontario, this summer has been wicked hot. Heat wave after heat wave have rocked the city, and across Canada citizens have had to flee their homes from wildfires and many areas have been hit with drought. Because of climate change, extreme weather has become the new normal. It has never been more important to act to reduce emissions.
We have the power to make the climate crisis the #1 issue for this federal election. We need to see bold and rapid leadership on this crisis, and it's up to citizens to elect candidates that will rise to the challenge.
