Looking for some new routes to walk during your daily fresh air outing? We have an opportunity for you that will make a difference.
We need to distribute thousands of pamphlets calling attention to the Ontario government’s plan to expand the use of gas-fired electricity by more than 300% by 2025. Considering the urgency of the climate crisis, the opportunity to reduce demand through conservation, the drastic drop in wind and solar costs over the last five years, and the availability of low-cost water power and storage from Quebec, Ontario’s abrupt pivot toward expanding the use of fracked gas is startling.
We’re looking for volunteers to go door-to-door leaving pamphlets in household mailboxes around Ontario. Can you help? (High school students can gain volunteer hours.)
These deliveries can be safely carried out while maintaining social distancing (no contact with residents), and we will provide gloves and masks.
Social media is important, but we also need to get the word out to people’s doorsteps about Doug Ford’s plan to drag Ontario backwards. Your help can ensure we do not throw away one-third of the climate pollution reductions Ontario achieved by phasing out coal-fired power. Now is the time to move toward a 100% renewable future, rather than dial up greenhouse gas pollution.
You can order free leaflets here for distribution anywhere in Ontario.
We will also be doing group blitzes in Toronto, Pickering and Hamilton over the summer months. If you can join us, please contact me (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Thanks for helping us put boots to pavement and get the word out about how we can meet our 2030 climate target and lower our electricity bills by phasing-out our gas-fired power plants.
