Here are a list of candidates who will champion a made-in-Canada New Green Deal

 

 

Today, we released our first round of federal election endorsements. Here’s our list of candidates from across the country who will champion a made-in-Canada Green New Deal.

We’re endorsing these 13 candidates because they are bold leaders who will push the envelope when they’re elected. They will take risks, organize fellow Members of Parliament, and work across party lines to tackle the climate emergency. And, they’re running grassroots campaigns connected to movements in their communities.

We set a high bar for our endorsements. 

All of our candidates were nominated by Our Time organizers across the country. We trust them to fight for a made-in-Canada Green New Deal. That means they will champion science-based climate policy. They will work to fully implement the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples. And, they will get to work rebuilding our economy with justice, dignity, and decent jobs for all.

Find out how you can support our endorsed candidates.

In my hometown, Winnipeg, we’re endorsing Leah Gazan. I’ve known Leah for many years. Leah has spent her life fighting for human rights and is a tireless advocate for Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls and for the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples. She has served our community for decades as a teacher, member of the taxi board, and a dedicated organizer for justice.

Now, we’re ready to make sure that champions like Leah Gazan win their seats in Parliament. We will mobilize a generational alliance of voters in support of Green New Deal Champions in this election. Join our movement.

The government we elect in October will lead us through 4 of the 11 years we have to act on the climate crisis.

Today, the Globe & Mail confirmed that the climate emergency will be a top ballot box issue this election.¹

This is our time for the kind of action that we all know we need.  SOURCE

If we get to work now, we can elect a slate of Green New Deal champions this October. But it doesn’t stop there. We’re building a mass-movement of people that will hold these politicians to account once they’re elected. Will you join in?

The next federal election is getting closer by the second. Canadians are scheduled to vote on Oct. 21 (unless the election comes early, which is always possible). Everything you need to know about where and how to vote, and just how that early trip to the polls might happen, is right here.

As it stands, the first polls open in 110 days, 22 hours, 47 minutes, and 29 seconds.

Canadians can expect a heated campaign that pits Justin Trudeau’s Liberals against Andrew Scheer’s Conservatives and Jagmeet Singh’s and New Democrats, as well as Elizabeth May’s Greens. This is Trudeau’s second time on the hustings as a leader, and both Scheer and Singh’s first. May has led her party through three campaigns.

Most parties will release their full election platforms during the campaign itself. But they do release some of their plans in advance; we’ll publish any proposal that can reasonably be considered an election promise. We’ll stick to the four main national parties to start, but reserve the right to add other parties’ proposals. Did we miss something? Let us know by emailing letters@macleans.ca.
