ACTION ALERT: CLIMATE ACTION IN THE CITY BUDGET
Toronto passed a bold new climate plan in July, one that will help us reach our targets and improve the lives of Torontonians by expanding transit, improving housing, creating jobs and reducing air pollution.
But without funding, this plan won't succeed. The preliminary 2018 City Budget was just released and there is no money set aside for TransformTO.
Toronto is already falling behind: short-term climate actions recommended in last year's City Budget weren’t fully funded. Toronto can’t afford another year of delays!
If Mayor Tory and City Council are serious about being climate leaders, TransformTO must be fully funded in the 2018 City Budget. Ambitious strategies are worthless without the funding to make them a reality.
As the Mayor and City Councillors begin deliberating the City Budget, let’s remind them of their commitment to take action on climate change. Send a message now to tell your Councillor and the Mayor that you want to see TransformTO fully funded and implemented as part of the 2018 City Budget.
