99% of lakes and rivers across Canada (2.5 million) have been stripped of federal protection by the Harper Conservatives. Right now, Brad Firth, better known as Caribou Legs, is on an inspiring journey to restore them.
This summer, the Gwichin ultra-marathoner from Inuvik is running 4,400kms from Vancouver to Ottawa to deliver a powerful message to politicians leading into the federal election: If you want our vote, you must pledge to restore federal protections for our lakes and rivers.
On July 5th, thousands of people will take to the streets of Toronto to call for an economy that reflects our values, creates good jobs, and solves climate change. Join us in demanding that our politicians listen to the people and take real climate action.

The future of the Earth and of human civilization now depends greatly on a single number: the concentration of carbon dioxide (CO2) in the atmosphere. If we want to preserve a world similar to the one in which human civilization developed, scientists have concluded that we need to stabilize the level of CO2 below 350 parts per million (ppm). Achieving that objective means moving rapidly away from fossil fuels and toward climate-safe forms of energy that human beings can rely on indefinitely.
