Climate Emergency Declaration: Petition to the House of Assembly of Newfoundland and Labrador
We, the undersigned residents of the Province of NL, bring the attention of the House of Assembly to the following:
According to the document “The Way Forward on Climate Change” the province is already experiencing the effects of climate change;
NL joined the Pan-Canadian Framework on Clean Growth and Climate Change in 2016, but is not on track to meet its 2020 targets;
Financial costs resulting from climate change will unequally impact municipalities due to responsibilities set out in the “Municipalities Act 1999”
THEREFORE, your petitioners call upon the House of Assembly to urge the government to:
Declare a CLIMATE EMERGENCY
Establish a task force on decreasing the effects of the climate crisis while building community resilience
Consider climate in all policy & decision making
