350.org, is a worldwide rally, with thousands of events taking place in countries across the globe.
Canadian Green Climate Change Critic Adriana Mugnatto-Hamu will be speaking at the Moving Planet event in Toronto's
Queen's Park, along with local Green provincial candidate Mark Daye.
“We are highlighting the importance of green energy, a key issue here in
Ontario,” said Mugnatto-Hamu. “But even more than that, we are
highlighting how many Canadians are part of this movement and are ready
to take action.”
Deputy Green Leader Adriane Carr will also
speak at an event in Vancouver. “Canadians realize that we need to
start the transition to a lower-carbon way of life and we are asking for
governments and industry to join with us in taking meaningful action to
achieve that goal,” said Carr.
Arctic and Northern Affairs Critic John
Streicker is pleased more attention is finally being paid to climate
change, an issue that hits close to home. “We in the North have been
seeing the impacts of climate change for many years and are continually
taking action, including helping low income community members to bring
down their energy costs. Individual action is key and when we have a
global mass action like Moving Planet, we see the power that can come
from banding together.”
