Lobby your provincial government
The Ontario Climate Change Action Plan is not ambitious enough to meet our fair share of the Paris Agreement pledge.
We have calculated the limits that Ontario needs to set and follow
If you live in Ontario, tell your Member of Provincial Parliament to:
- support municipal transit such as Toronto's TTC and refuse to allow funds allocated to LRT to be used for subways
- require trucks and buses to use speed limiters set them to the legal speed limit maximum of 100 kph
- restore the Green Energy Plan, and support off-shore wind turbines
- change our electoral system from first-past-the post to proportional representation
- create a provincial utility to encourage energy conservation
Here is a current list of Ontario MPPs.

There are a number of organizations that will assist you in learning how to lobby MPs, MPPs and MLAs:
Provincial Emissions (1990-2014)
These 2 charts are of Canadian Provincial emissions betwen 1990 and 2014. Nunavut's emissions are not included because Nunavut was not separated from the Northwest Territories (NWT) until April 1, 1999 and as a result their emissions were included with those of NWT before 1999.
The following chart illustrates each province's annual emissions as a percentage of their emissions in 1990, which is the base year for the Kyoto Accord. Of the larger provinces, Quebec has the largest reduction (92.7%), followed by Ontario (93.6%).
The table below indicates the percentage increases by province sorted by percentages from increases (Saskatchewan) to reductions (Yukon).
