Petitions from the NRDC

Demand a democracy where corporations answer to people — not the other way around!

Petition to Premier Doug Ford re: We need a Climate Action Plan

The Canadian Association of Physicians for the Environment  are deeply concerned that in the midst of this worldwide turmoil, your government is dismantling a climate action plan that was 10 years in the making.  That plan included a cap-and-trade program that reduced emissions from large industrial sources in a cost-effective

way, while generating billions of dollars that were being used to reduce emissions from schools, farms, hospitals, housing, the municipal sector, and the transportation sector.  Sign the petition
