Action locale

La force de notre organisation vient de notre réseau d’experts, de partenaires et de volontaires. Nos groupes sont engagés dans de nombreux projets à l’échelle locale. Vous voulez nous aider? Contactez notre bureau national ou un groupe local près de chez vous. Si vous avez déjà rassemblé autour de vous des personnes motivées et que vous souhaitez travailler sur un projet particulier dans votre région, vous pouvez créer un groupe local. Selon les principes de notre organisation:
Les groupes doivent être formés de 3 membres ou plus qui souhaiteraient devenir actifs au sein de leur communauté locale ou d’une zone géographique plus importante; ils doivent se concentrer sur un ou plusieurs enjeux de protection et exister sur le long terme, de façon continue. Autrement, les questions de court terme seront gérées au sein du groupe principal déjà existant ou bien au niveau national si aucun groupe principal n’existe déjà.

Trump's lump of coal

Breathing is easier “beyond coal.”

In 2007, before the shut down of the coal-fired power generating plants in Ontario, there were 29 smog days and 11 smog advisories in Toronto.  It seemed that almost every hot day there was choking smog.  At that time, I couldn’t even escape to my cottage in the Kawarthas.  That same year, there were 21 smog days and 8 smog advisories in Peterborough County.

In light of the decisions on pipelines, I wanted to share with you my address at our AGM last weekend: GRASSROOTS AFTER THE QUAKE

It's been a tempestuous month.

In the last weeks, two world events have shaken our world and will continue shake up our work in the year ahead.

In Marrakesh, world leaders and civil society gathered to push for implementation of The Paris Agreement. The event has exceeded expectations: entry onto force of The Paris Agreement ahead of schedule, over 175 nations signing the agreement, 47 countries committing to 100% clean energy between 2030 and 2050.

Tell the federal government a new law is needed to protect Canadians’ free speech

From laws banning smoking in public places and the creation of anti-drinking and driving laws, to reducing acid rain, these important measures and more were a result of charities voicing Canadians’ concerns.

These whales cannot go to court

Because of you, we have been an instrumental force on this campaign since the beginning, and we’re not going anywhere. But we need your help!

Proposed Amendment 1: The Latest Strategy to Gut Provincial Planning

Although inconspicuously described as “Amendment Number I to the Ontario Growth Plan”, its impact if approved would be catastrophic. Amendment No. 1, would neuter the thrust of provincially directed land use planning, since it began to have an impact in a document entitled “Design for Development” (1966). It was also described as the Toronto Centred Region Plan.
