Musicians urge federal candidates on climate crisis
Musicians and speakers will gather at the iconic Black Sheep in Wakefield, Sunday, September 8 to call for urgent action on the climate crisis. In the lead-up to the September 20-27 week of global climate actions and the October federal election, it has never been more critical for people to demand that candidates and political leaders provide leadership - vision - and bold policies and consider multi-party collaboration to respond to the global climate crisis.
The event entitled, “It’s Time Now!,” is being organized by the La Pêche Coalition for a Green New Deal. The local group makes clear that it’s time now to step away from the status quo and embrace a grassroots Green New Deal that would transition communities away from fossil fuels.
The Coalition will urge participants to sign a petition to declare a climate emergency in La Pêche and attend the climate strike on Parliament Hill on September 27 as well as local climate debates.
Musicians: Ian Tamblyn, Alise Marlane, Mia Kelly, Lucila Al Mar, Phil Jenkins and others.
Speakers: Catherine Abreu (Climate Actions Network), Emma Lui (Ottawa Water Study/Action Group), and Vi Bui (Our Time and Council of Canadians). Date: Sunday, 8 September at 4-7 pm. Venue: Black Sheep Inn, Riverside Dr., Wakefield.
La Pêche Coaliton for a Green New Deal supports the non-partisan pact for a Green New Deal and is leading actions in the municipality of La Pêche advocating environmental and social justice and advancing a Green New Deal.
