Climate Action Network Canada has a new website!
We are happy to announce the launch of our new website. We hope that this will be a place where Canadians can gather to learn about and discuss everything pertaining to climate change in Canada. You can check out our News page to find all the latest headlines (and archived newsletters!), Publications to see all the reports our members have written, the Get Involved page for the latest campaigns and action alerts, or the Issues section to learn about all the topics relating to climate change.
The site is still new, so if you find something that is broken, or just think of a way it could be better, please let us know! Send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
12,000 people circle the White House to say NO to the Keystone XL pipeline
In August, 1200 people were arrested at the White House to send an unequivocal message to President Obama: reject the Keystone XL pipeline. On November 6, ten times that number of people returned to DC to reiterate that message. After an inspiring rally with Bill McKibben and other leaders of the movement, 12,000 people encircled the White House, holding signs to remind Obama of his own campaign promises. Obama has to make the final decision whether to approve the pipeline that would carry the world’s dirtiest oil from the Alberta tar sands to the Gulf of Mexico, so protestors held signs reminding him that in 2008 he said his presidency would be ‘the point the sea level rise starts to slow and out planet begins to heal’. The State Department has already started to listen, agreeing to review the environmental assessment that was done with an allegedly pro-pipeline bias. Check out some more media coverage:

Provincial and Territorial Leadership Conference a Success!
On November 1st and 2nd, Climate Action Network Canada hosted a conference in Montréal with over 100 environmental, labour, first nations, youth, development and faith leaders from across the country to discuss the positive initiatives that are occurring at the provincial and municipal levels. We would like to say thank you to everyone who participated and helped make it possible! There was some fantastic discussion and exciting ideas about how to expand on the successes in different parts of the country. Check out this blog from Andrew Gage of West Coast Environmental Law, talking about his experience at the conference.
