Pass the Copenhagen Climate Bill Now
Members of Parliament have been debating Bill C-311, the Climate Change Accountability Act.
Bill C-311 will ensure that Canada commits to science-based targets for reducing greenhouse gas emissions, following recommendations of the Nobel Prize-winning Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change.
A critical vote will be held on October 21. Members of Parliament have a choice: they can delay this bill, or support the swift passage of this crucial legislation.
We are urging MP’s to vote NO to additional time at the committee, and vote YES for the bill at Third Reading. We have waited long enough.
Please contact Members of Parliament to urge them to pass Bill C-311 as soon as possible. They have an historic opportunity and responsibility to pass a climate plan before the talks in Copenhagen.
Canada needs a climate plan before the international talks in Copenhagen.
- Contact Members of Parliament before the vote on October 21. Ask them to vote against extending the time in committee. For contact information, visit the Parliament of Canada web site.
- Show your support for Bill C-311 at the Environment Committee meeting on Tuesday, October 20, 11 am-1 pm, Wellington Building, Room 214, 180 Wellington Street, Ottawa.
