Unceded Algonquin Anishinaabe Territories [OTTAWA], 14 September 2021:
On Thursday, September 16th at 7:00 PM (Eastern Time), Climate Action Network Canada will host a bilingual roundtable discussion bringing together representatives from all major parties to participate in a constructive dialogue on how to advance climate action in Canada.
Fatima Syed, host of the CANADALAND Backbench podcast, and Caroline Brouillette, Domestic Policy Manager at Climate Action Network Canada, will moderate the conversation, which will feature Dan Albas (Conservative Party), Laurel Collins (New Democratic Party), Kristina Michaud (Bloc Québecois), Dr. Imre Szeman (Green Party) and the Honourable Jonathan Wilkinson (Liberal Party). Audiences on Zoom and Facebook Live will hear how each party plans to build a safe and healthy future for people and the planet – and how and when they’ll implement those plans.
This summer’s heatwaves and fires, in conjunction with the recent IPCC report, have made it clear: the climate crisis is here, and it demands urgent action. Recent polls have shown that climate will be top of mind for voters this election – but far from being a single issue, climate is intertwined with every other aspect of our lives, society, and economy. This is the conversation voters need.
