Help Ontario shape up on climate change

Is your New Year’s resolution to get a little more exercise and fresh air?  Thanks to the provincial government’s decision to call three by-elections for Feb. 8, we have the perfect opportunity for you.  We need volunteers to help distribute our Nanticoke: Canada’s No. 1 air  polluter pamphlet in the York South-Weston (Weston Road-Eglinton area in Toronto), Markham and Burlington ridings over the next four weeks. 
 
Not only will you get a chance to get some great exercise, meet friendly people, and explore your neighbourhood (or someone else’s), you will also be doing a great service by helping to draw attention to the link between dirty coal plants with their humungous greenhouse gas emissions and a winter in which you could be doing pamphlet distribution in a t-shirt.  This is our chance to make sure that all three major parties get the message that Ontarians want a firm 2009 deadline for a coal phase-out as the No. 1 action this province can take to meet its Kyoto climate obligations!
 
If you’d like to help, please contact OCAA volunteer coordinator Manisha Pahwa at 416-557-2123 or manisha@cleanairalliance.org.  She will give you all the information and pamphlets you need to help Ontario get on the path to climate fitness.
 
Please pass this message on to your friends.

Thank you
