For years, we’ve stood up for a healthy climate in Canada by opposing new fossil fuel infrastructure. But parallel to this fight is to create a vision for the communities we want to live in. Adopting local climate solutions – cycling networks, renewable energy, public transit and local food production, building retrofits – is crucial to building climate-friendly communities.
Governments can steer the public towards these options by pricing climate-changing carbon pollution, eliminating fossil fuel subsidies, funding green infrastructure and setting greenhouse gas reduction targets. They also must shift funding from highway expansion to public transit. Climate policy needs to be equitable and effective to enable the transition to a low-carbon society.
Communities in Canada are already well on their way, but we need meaningful action from provincial and federal governments. Our educational report, Zero Carbon or Bust, contains a roadmap for the strong regulations we need to move forward.
