Canada on Fire

On September 8th, while catastrophic climate events continue to erupt around us, Kitchener-Waterloo will be demanding emergency-level climate action. Join us at Waterloo Public Square to call for a moratorium on fossil fuel expansion and just transition legislation. Together, we can show our elected officials that climate change will be a central issue to voters this year as record-breaking climate events ravage communities coast-to-coast. Bring face masks, friends, and signs as we demand our politicians to muster up the courage to combat the climate crisis.
