Call on your MP to #waiverepayment for all resettled refugees in Canada!
Climate change is an urgent issue that requires immediate action. Life as we know it is not sustainable at the current rate of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. GHGs are released into the atmosphere by human activities, such as transportation, farming, use of electronics. Climate scientists have produced significant research demonstrating the risks of rising emissions and concerned citizens are doing their best to encourage action. Now, it is up to us to make a difference. We must reduce our personal emissions and press the government to ensure that larger emitters do the same!
Created by the Canadian Council of Churches, KAIROS, and Citizens for Public Justice (CPJ), the #ForTheLoveOfCreation video collaboration highlights the need for urgent action by Canadians – and the Canadian government – on climate change.
