We urgently need systemic change to address and minimize the effects of the climate crisis being felt all over the world. While we can’t solve the world’s problems, we can do what we can to address the situation in our own backyard.

To do that, we need you and your energy, whether it’s for ongoing work in our sub-groups (see below) or for one-off actions and events.

Anti-oppression

Focusing on solidarity and ethical practices

Conservation Matters

Responding to local attacks on the environment

Elders for Climate Sanity

Taking climate action for the next generation

Political Action

Holding our elected officials to account

Fossil Fuel Resistance

Encouraging the transition to renewable energy

Digital Communication

Making our voices heard on the web and social media

If you don’t have spare time on your hands but can afford to make a GoFundMe donation to help further our work:

There are costs associated with organizing and holding events, getting the word out, providing honoraria for speakers and performers, hosting this website, and much more.

We acknowledge that we are on the traditional lands of the Erie, Neutral, Huron-Wendat, Haudenosaunee, and Mississauga peoples, which are governed by the Dish With One Spoon Wampum Agreement and are covered by the Great Lakes Purchase of 1792.

I know a lot of you can't get in to Toronto Saturday February 25th to be at #QueensPark . It's a big big ask for some communities. The coalition is looking into buses, it's not synched up yet but fingers crossed 🤞But even if they do, there is no way they are going to be able to cover the many many communities that want to get out there, tell Ford this just won't do. So , why not approach your local school board and inquire about borrowing a bus and driver for the day. Organize a collection for gas and a little for the driver.Or...If your local church or Legion has a van they're willing to lend out for the day, it can't hurt to inquire into it.OrHere's another idea... Why not get together and organize a protest in your community the same day.Get local speakers to speak on what is affecting you and your region.Taxes, development, environment, healthcare, farm land losses, what ever is hurting your community. Meet up with others and begin right away. Have sign making parties.Make it a real community effort. Get a petition together and print it out. Have it there to sign. List all the ways your community is being negatively effected by the Ford Conservative policies.Then send it to your local politicians.Send a copy to Doug Ford.Here where you can form a government accepted, to be brought before legislature, e-petition to print off ⏬www.ola.org/en/get-involved/petitions If it's too cold...Do a rolling protest through your community in your cars/trucks. Get creative, have fun. Do your car's/ trucks right up.Arrange activities for the kids. Get all involved.Have a few tables together and serve coffee, tea hot chocolate, maybe some baked goods. Make it a real family friendly community event.Get the community to contact local press and radio letting them know your joining in on the "Not so Welcome Back" #WelcomeBackDougProtest of Doug Ford's Conservatives.If enough of you contact them you will get their attention. There's so many ways you can join in without coming to Toronto.But remember, if you are, ask any locals if they'd like a ride.Make it a real community affair.Just some thoughts.#WecomeBackDougProtest#ItsAboutEverythingPlease go to the "Welcome Back Doug" page if you are interested in forming your own protest, I'm sure they'd be happy to promote your protest event on their page.Link:www.facebook.com/welcomebackdoug?mibextid=ZbWKwL( as always General Strike Against Ford is happy to also post any and all coinciding events on this page, just tag us in the post) This is a well organized Coalition event.
