Calgary City Council: Take Climate Action Now!

Sign the petition!
City Council has reaffirmed the need to act on climate change in the 2018 Climate Resilience Plan and has recognized that doing so offers opportunities for Calgarians. We call upon City Council to fulfill this vision by adopting a climate-positive budget with measures that will improve the quality of life for all Calgarians, including seniors, low-income households, and students. This will build a socially just and vibrant Calgary. We want to see these firm commitments from City Council in this budget cycle:

1. LOW-CARBON ACTION COMMITTEE: UPPHOLD THE CITY'S COMMITMENTS AND ENGAGE CALGARIANS
Create a committee of impartial climate change experts to monitor and report on the Calgary Climate Resilience Strategy, and advise on efficient climate action for the City.

2. ACTIVE TRANSPORTATION: INCREASE MOBILITY OPTIONS TO HELP CALGARIANS GET AROUND
Increase public transit hours and public transit service;
Continue to invest in low-income transit passes (Fair Entry program);
Invest in transit priorities and yield-to-bus measures;
Invest in electric buses;
Continue to invest in protected bike lanes and other biking infrastructure.

3. ENERGY EFFICIENCY: REDUCE ENERGY USE AND SAVE CALGARIANS MONEY
Invest in programs that enable Calgarians to make their homes and businesses more energy efficient and generate their own (renewable) energy to reduce their energy bills.

This petition will be handed to City Council and City Clerk on November 26, 2018.
