The Green Party and NDP should form a Climate Emergency Alliance and pledge to do everything in their power to tackle the climate crisis with the urgency it demands. We're calling on both parties to work together in the next federal election to elect as many climate champions as possible. Then, join forces in Parliament to pass ambitious climate legislation.
Green Party Leader Annamie Paul and NDP leader Jagmeet Singh,
I call on you to set aside your partisan differences and form a Climate Emergency Alliance between the Green Party and NDP ahead of the next federal election.
In this Alliance, both of your parties would come together under the promise to do everything in your power to tackle the climate emergency at the pace and scale that science and justice demand. You would pledge to work together during the election to elect as many climate champions as possible, and afterwards in Parliament to pass ambitious climate legislation in line with a made-in-Canada Green New Deal.
We can’t afford to wait for Justin Trudeau to start governing like we’re in a climate emergency. Nor can we wait several decades for the NDP or Green parties to build enough power to form government. Under our broken voting system, a Climate Emergency Alliance is the best possible option for our climate and our communities.
Will you form a Climate Emergency Alliance as we head into the next federal election?
