The March for Jobs, Justice and the Climate filled the streets of downtown Toronto today, demanding a justice-based transition to a green-energy economy.

A press release sent after the Toronto march pegged the number of marchers at over 10,000 including celebrities Jane Fonda and David Suzuki.

The thousands in Toronto were not the only people to take part this weekend. Events for jobs, justice and the climate were held in cities and towns across Canada.

If you're looking for a reason to take to the streets this weekend, look no further.

July 7-9, the Government of Canada is hosting a pan-American dialogue on long-term climate action at a 2015 Climate Summit of the Americas in Toronto.

You know what that is? A valuable opportunity for us all to come together and unite our voices.

This is a strange time. A Papal Encyclical is generating almost as much excitement than a Beyoncé album — complete with pre-launch leaks and a global media frenzy.
