March 5, 2020 – We are facing a climate emergency and biodiversity crisis. Canadians are already experiencing floods, fires and ecological disruption. As our planet continues to warm, our collective well-being is under grave threat. There is still time to chart a course to a safe future for all, but we won’t be able to halt this crisis without federal investments in climate action, nature conservation and biodiversity protection.

To get it done, our government needs to commit sufficient funding in the upcoming federal budget, or risk losing critical time in the race to protect our planet’s health.
