Toronto City Council Debates City's Climate Action Plan - Thursday Night - May 24, 2017

Dear friends,
 
Toronto City Council has scheduled the TransformTO decision as the first item of business after the supper break on Thursday May 25th - tomorrow.  And it would be a very good idea for us to fill the council chambers.  So please COME DOWN TO CITY HALL IF YOU CAN - for 6:30 pm.  Council generally runs only till 8 pm, so it won't be a late night.

Information is below for those who have not yet called, emailed or tweeted their councillor or the mayor.

 
Stand up for 2050 climate action plan! Come out for TransformTO!





We are told that the Mayor is not yet 100% confirmed on his vote and so we must keep lobbying.
