Families are losing their homes to flooding, farmers are losing crops to extreme weather conditions, and more and more kids are suffering from asthma and other illnesses because of pollution.
Canadians need a government that will fight to protect our families and our planet – but we're running out of time.
Justin Trudeau promised to do something about the climate crisis – but then he gave out huge fossil fuel subsidies and spent billions buying the outdated and leaky Trans Mountain pipeline. And Trudeau's Liberal government isn't even on track to meet the emission reduction targets that Stephen Harper set – targets that are inadequate for securing a safe, clean future for Canadians.
People should be able to count on their government to have the courage to act on climate change. That means taking real action to create good jobs, transition to a clean economy, and make life more affordable for people while protecting our land, water, and air.
It's clear that Trudeau's Liberals are continuing to delay taking steps towards a clean future – and our communities are paying the price for their inaction. That's why Jagmeet Singh and our NDP MPs are prioritizing the fight for real climate action that puts people and our planet at the centre of our climate future.
Working together with First Nations, Inuit, and Métis as full and equal partners is critical to the fight against climate change. We're committed to supporting Indigenous leadership in climate action, respect for Indigenous rights and lands, and implementation of the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples.
Jagmeet and our NDP team are determined to fight climate change and create at least 300,000 new jobs while saving families money and taking on big polluters. The time for delay and denial is over – it’s time to act. Add your name now and support our fight for climate action.
