Ask your local candidates where they stand on action on climate change and whether they will support fully funding TransformTO.

Ask them where they stand on issues that impact climate change such as funding public transport, making it safe for cyclists and pedestrians, more green spaces and tree planting, improving recycling and composting, retrofitting city social housing and municipal buildings and building net zero energy consumption commercial and residential buildings.
You can also volunteer for a candidate that is a climate champion. Candidates needs hundreds of volunteers to deliver flyers and signs, call voters, knock on doors and more. Contact your candidate and ask how you can help.
