Monthly Advocacy Check-Ins

With all the “calls to action,” events and petitions that are out there, things can get overwhelming sometimes. So we have started reaching out to supporters once a month with a single, achievable task that can help you make a difference. You can sign up for our mailing list to receive these advocacy check-ins here, and/or you can check this page monthly for updates!

April Check-In

Here’s one way you can participate in the climate movement this month:

Saskatchewan’s Provincial Budget

The best available science, as set out in the IPCC special report of 2018, tells us that the world’s carbon dioxide emissions need to be reduced by at least 45% by 2030 and brought to zero by mid-century.  As a driver of Canada’s greenhouse gas emissions, Saskatchewan has a particular responsibility – and a unique opportunity to have a major impact.  But the current government seems to have chosen to drive us in the opposite direction.

Saskatchewan’s government is supposed to be working for you.  Tell Premier Scott Moe and Minister of Finance Donna Harpauer – and your own MLA – that you expect better than this.

“I have 20 minutes and will write my own letter, just tell me where to send it!”  CLICK HERE

If these links don’t work for you, text for these emails is available HERE.

If you take this action, CJS would be grateful if you would share with us (climateactionsk@gmail.com) any responses you may get.

“What about last month’s Advocacy Check-in?  I missed it.”  

Not a problem!  It isn’t too late to tell the federal government you want Bill C-12 to do more for climate change. Scroll down for details.

March Check-In

Here’s one way you can participate in the climate movement this month:

Bill C12, the Canadian Net-Zero Emissions Accountability Act

This legislation would require government to set multiple targets to reduce emissions – but there is no penalty for failing to meet those targets.  There is no assessment due for more than 10 years.  And no new targets have to be set before 2030.

The next 10 years are CRITICAL.  We can’t wait a decade to see how we’re doing.  We need interim targets, assessments, and penalties for non-adherence.

Make sure you are heard! Contact the PM, the Minister, and your MP.  Send a detailed letter or a brief note – both are effective.

“What about last month’s Advocacy Check-in?  I missed it.”  

Not a problem!  It isn’t too late to tell Saskatoon’s City Council you want them to read A Good War by Seth Klein. Scroll down for details.

February check-in

TELL SASKATOON’S CITY COUNCIL TO GET INFORMED ABOUT CLIMATE ACTION!

“This is the roadmap out of climate crisis that Canadians have been waiting for.” ― Naomi Klein

Seth Klein’s book A Good War:  Mobilizing Canada for the Climate Emergency is a blueprint for Canada’s response to climate change.  Using the response to the challenges of World War II as a model, Klein outlines a bold, practical policy plan – and a remarkably hopeful message for how we can rise to the challenge. CJS has had a copy delivered to each Saskatoon councilor, as well as to Mayor Charlie Clark.  Call your Councillor and let them know that you expect them to read this book ASAP, so they can meet their responsibilities and make informed plans for Saskatoon’s future.

Call Mayor Charlie Clark:  306-975-3202
