Green New Deal - Peterborough/Kawartha Regional Town Hall

Thursday, May 30th, 2019 - 6:30 pm

Join us for a town hall meeting to help shape the vision for a Green New Deal for Canada.

There is a movement afoot n this country to create a grassroots Green New Deal for Canada. The time has come to put pressure on politicians to do something serious about the mounting Climate Crisis.  To this end  70 national groups concerned with the environment have banded together to hold Town Halls on this issue.  Several local groups including Friends of Jackson Park have signed up to help organize a Town Hall here in the Electric City. I hope you will join us next Thursday.

This event is one of many Green New Deal town halls being held in communities across the country in May 2019. The conversation is being led from the ground up through town halls bringing together people from all walks of life to discuss our vision for a new economy -- one that cuts global warming pollution, sees the full implementation of the UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples, the Right to Free Prior and Informed Consent, and the TRC recommendations, creates millions of green jobs, and makes sure no one gets left behind. The input from these town halls will be used to inform a vision for a Green New Deal for all.
