Send your Premier an #ActOnClimate selfie to let them know you demand climate protection, no tar sands pipelines, and clean energy solutions now.

Step 1: Take a “selfie”; add a “no pipelines” icon or a message card
Step 2: Post it to Facebook and tag Premier Kathleen Wynn
Step 3: Tweet it at Premier @Kathleen_Wynne using the hashtag #ActOnClimate.

Here are some sample tweets:
Hey @KathleenWynne – you can’t #ActOnClimate and not oppose #Energy East

I want @Kathleen_Wynne to #ActOnClimate – stop the expansion of Alberta’s tar sands by stopping #Energy East

I don’t support #EnergyEast, @Kathleen_Wynne. I want you to #ActOnClimate.


Earth Day Film Screening | THE WISDOM TO SURVIVE : Climate Change, Capitalism & Community

Wednesday April 22nd, 7-9pm
Emmanuel United Church, 395 Lakeshore Drive

Climate change is here. Will we have the wisdom to survive? The film features thought leaders and activists in the realms of science, economics and spirituality discussing how we can evolve and take action in the face of climate disruption. The film includes interviews with activists Bill McKibben, Joanna Macy, Roger Payne, Herschelle Milford, Quincy Saul, and more.

A film by Old Dog Documentaries. 56 minutes.

About the film
This film accepts the consensus of scientists that climate change has already arrived, and asks­what is keeping us from action? In discussions with thought leaders and activists, we explore how unlimited growth and greed are destroying the life support system of the planet, the social fabric of the society, and the lives of billions of people.

This Earth Day event is sponsored by Stop Energy East (North Bay)
