Stand with these 15 youth in climate court action
Fifteen young people are going to court for climate justice, demanding that the federal government stop violating their charter rights by perpetuating dangerous climate change. They want government to develop a science-based climate plan.
The government wants to have the La Rose case thrown out. But emerging from COVID-19 offers a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to re-evaluate our ways and build back better.
This pandemic demonstrates that governments can and must take systemic action to address issues causing widespread harm to public health. It shows we must heed the science and act early and aggressively.
Show your support for the plaintiffs by adding your name, or write your own message by adapting this letter. We’ll pass your messages on and let the youth know people in Canada support them and their demand for the protection of their rights to a stable climate.
This lawsuit needs to proceed to trial. These courageous young people deserve to be heard!
