September 15, 2015, a group of prominent Canadians launched a manifesto outlining a bold climate and economic vision. We at rabble.ca are happy to have livestreamed the press conference to announce the Leap Manifesto: A Call for a Canada Based on Caring for the Earth and One Another. It has been translated into eight languages, including Cree and Inuktitut. The aim is to gather tens of thousands of signatures and build pressure on the next federal government to transition Canada off fossil fuels while also making it a more livable, fair and just society.
The Council of Canadians has created a voter's guide providing a summary political party positions on key issues and a list of questions for activists to ask candidates. The issues in this well in this well-layed out and very informative guide include:
- Protecting water
- Protecting the climate from extreme energy and pipelines
- Defending democracy
- Trade justice
- Saving public health care
