According to a 2018 report by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), it is possible for the world to avoid catastrophic climate change, but we only have 11 years to do so.
In response, the Green Party recently released a 20-point plan entitled Mission: Possible. To date, we are the only federal party with a plan to meet the IPCC’s goal of reducing greenhouse gases by 60% from 2005 levels by 2030, and to eliminate emissions by 2050.
When Doug Ford unilaterally shrunk the size of Toronto City Council, mayors from across Canada condemned the move. We now need the federal government to work with the provinces to ensure that cities have more independence in decision-making and receive a greater share of overall tax revenues.
Tim and the Green Party support charter status for Canadian cities so they can control their own destiny.
Considering voting Green but scared doing so might allow a Conservative candidate to win? Fear not - University-Rosedale is not only one of the greenest communities in Canada, it's also one of the least likely to send a Conservative to Ottawa.
