Support action and leadership on global warming!

The Harper government released an economic update last week that had no vision for the future of our environment. There was no economic stimulus that would create a green economy and green jobs.

Worse still, at the United Nations climate change conference that has begun in Poznan, Poland, the Harper government is clearly not prepared to join the world and take real action on global warming. The UN conference in Poznan is a crucial milestone in the fight to stop global warming.

The leaders of Canada's three opposition parties have proposed a coalition government that will take action on global warming. All three leaders have supported the KYOTOplus pledge to support significant reductions in Canada's greenhouse gas emissions. The Harper government does not support the science-based reduction targets of KYOTOplus.

On Thursday, Saturday and Sunday, you have opportunities to show your support for Canadian action and political leadership on global warming. Make your voice heard.
