Policy change, not individual action, is the key - @KatieRaeP

Canada group to hold public assembly on fare-free public transit @courage_CA



Après avoir marché, qu’est-ce qui vient ensuite? (English below)
Les transports et le logement sont deux des plus importantes sources d’émissions climatiques au Québec. Ensemble, ils génèrent près de 50% de la pollution au CO2 au Québec.
Un mouvement en pleine croissance œuvre pour que la transition climatique soit bénéfique pour tous. Un «new deal vert» taxerait les très riches et les entreprises et renforcerait nos communautés avec la gratuité des transports en commun et des logements sociaux durables.
Le 6 octobre, nous tiendrons une assemblée publique qui rassemblera les gens pour discuter de la façon de créer un mouvement pour faire exactement cela. Rejoignez-nous!

After we march, what comes next? Two of the biggest sources of climate emissions in Quebec are transportation and housing. Together, they create almost 50% of Quebec’s CO2 pollution.
A growing movement is working to make the climate transition one that benefits everyone. A “green new deal” would tax the ultra-rich and corporations and make our communities stronger with free public transportation and social housing.
On Oct 6, we’re holding a public assembly that will bring people together to talk about how to build a movement to do just that. Join us!

Cheaper, cleaner, more convenient transit.Changing the way we get around by moving to 100% electric transit and free public transit, investing in high speed rail, and bringing back critical rural and northern transit routes.
