climate change is here,
there’s no doubt about it

we get it

Understanding climate change can be overwhelming and we’re seeing changes everyday.

we’ve all seen the weather changing

There’s more flooding, growing wildfires, and heatwaves that put our health at risk.

the problem will get much worse

If we don’t act now, we face future food shortages, more floods, more disease, and areas of the world will become uninhabitable.

we can solve this

by putting a price on carbon pollution

as the core part of our plan

the path to
reducing pollution

climate change
is here,

and will get worse
if we don’t act!

the earth
is sick

gas pump

a carbon tax
changes behaviour

e.g. gas prices rise
slowly…

giving you motivation to
consider reducing your
usage

carpool

you choose whether to:
carpool, use public transit,
get a fuel efficient car…
or make no change
(the rebate will offset your costs)

you choose how
to respond

electric car image

technology creates
new options

new options reduce
costs & pollution…

like cheaper
hybrid or electric cars,
or gas with more ethanol.

rebate image

you get a
carbon rebate

rebates offsets
the tax…

so you can afford any
new costs,and profit
if you reduce your
carbon footprint

Canada image

less carbon pollution

as people
change behaviour,

emissions go down
and our economy shifts
to cleaner energy.
the change will be gradual,
but powerful!

we’ve done it before,
we can do it again

Price on gases causing acid rain

acid rain reduced to almost 0%

what’s my rebate?

to help offset the slow rising costs

The average family of 4 in Ontario will get

$2064

from 2019-2022

we’re all in this together.
it’s what we need to do to keep
ourselves and our planet healthy.

your vote is needed
to protect the carbon tax

The Federal Election results will determine whether the carbon tax survives, or whether we lose the most effective tool we have to address climate change

When you look at our history, there are moments we can clearly define as the moments when we shifted and things began to change. 🌎 Putting a price on sulphur, greatly reduced acid rain. 🌎 Banning CFC’s helped bring back the ozone layer and reduced ozone depletion. 🌎 Putting a price on carbon pollution will do the same. This week was #WorldOzoneDay & an excellent reminder that there are tools (like the Carbon Tax) that are essential in helping to fight climate change. It’s time for us to step up #climateaction #stopclimatechange #climatechange #saveourplanet #thereisnoplanetb#togetherwecan ...

As we hit the end of #PlasticFreeJuly let’s keep on working on refining our consumer behaviour. It takes up to 700 years for a plastic bottle to dissolve. Make a small change and buy your family their own reusable water bottle (even the dog), to remind them to drink water throughout the day and to refill instead of using a single-use plastic water bottle. *Every small change will help make a bigger impact #dogsofinstagram #doggo #stopclimatechange #climatecrisis #consciousconsumerism #smallchangebigimpact #plasticrevolution #plasticpollution #fightthegreenfight #fairpathforward #sustainableliving #GoMamaBear ...

Have you had a chance to check your dog for ticks? ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ As another example of our climate crisis, there have been an increasing number of ticks due to warmer weather over the past five years. ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ Ticks can carry many diseases that can be transmitted to your dog once bitten. It is important to take a close look at your dog’s fur to avoid early stages of disease spreading. ⁣ ⁣ Save our furry friends and check them often. ...

DAY 6: CHANGING THE WAY YOU WASTE 🗑⁣ ⁣ Changing the way we think about waste today by being conscious of the one-use plastic we consume, the amount of waste we produce while making dinner can add up. The plastic produce bags provided at the grocery store, is something we may not even think about. Choosing the produce with no packaging rather than the ones already wrapped in plastic. Or even bringing your own container to buy nuts or trail mix. By being aware of all the one-use plastics just at the grocery store we can consciously reduce our daily waste. ⁣ ⁣ Day 6 of our #CareforCanada Photo Challenge and for today’s photo, share with us how little waste you provide while making dinner and use the hashtag #CareforCanada to be featured! ...
