Strike for Climate Justice

Event Details

This Friday, January 31st, Fridays for Future Toronto will be demanding our federal government to reject TECK during our weekly strike. If the government chooses to go forward, this tar sands project will prevent Canada from reaching its Climate Emissions reductions targets (which we are already not on track to meet), destroy the habitat, and infringe on the rights of indigenous communities.

We demand the the inclusion of historically disenfranchised voices in this necessary transition, the implementation of strong environmental protection policy and the setting of bold emissions reduction targets so that Canada reaches net zero emissions by 2040. We also demand a rapid implementation of the UNDRIP principles and for the federal government to uphold its promises to the Indigenous Peoples of Canada.

When: Friday January 31st, 12noon
Where: Queen’s Park, (south lawn)
