We need to revitalize our democratic institutions in order to encourage citizen participation and better reflect the diversity of local communities. The Green Party has always advocated for practical democratic reforms to our electoral systems in order to improve the transparency, accountability and representativeness of our elected representatives.
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.
The rail freight corridor on the North side of Dupont (bisecting Moore Park and Rosedale) carries up to 40 trains every day.
Many of these trains carry crude oil: a flammable liquid that not only can severely damage the environment when spilled, but also can cause fiery explosions if its tankers derail and crash.
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.
