Talking points to include in your message:
  • Hi my name is [name], and I am calling to urge you to vote for critical amendments to strengthen Bill C-12 and to ensure it is based in science, puts communities and workers first, and creates true government accountability. This is a once in a life-time legislation but without amendments it will fail to meet the climate crisis at the scale science says is required. 
  • The four key amendments I’m asking you to vote for are: 
    • Require the government to take bold action now, based on science and independent expertise. 
    • Set the first emissions target for 2025, instead of delaying climate action until it’s too late.
    • Bill C-12 should be aligned with UNDRIP and set targets for job creation to ensure a just transition for all workers.
    • Create true legal accountability for the federal government. Set clear, unconditional obligations on the Minister of Environment to meet Canada’s climate targets.
  • We all want a livable future and this Bill gives us a chance to make it happen. I will be following up to see if you supported amendments to make Bill C-12 a world class climate law.
