Letter: People can make a difference

To The Editor:

Denmark recently had an election, prior to which 1.2 percent of the population called for a more aggressive response to the climate emergency.  Danes now have a government that has strengthened its 2030 target to reduce carbon emissions by 70% below the 1990 level.

Canada's pitiful target is 30% below 2005 levels by 2030.

If 452,000 Canadians start demanding GHG reduction targets on Denmark's level, AND WE VOTE FOR A PARTY THAT HAS A PLATFORM TO MEET THOSE DEMANDS, we can put our country in the company of others that realize the urgency we are facing.

Become part of the 452,000 today. Write letters to the editor, call out politicians, and demonstrate your concern. 1.2% of us CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE.
