WE DEMAND ACTIONS NOT WORDS:  On Sunday, September 21, 2014, citizens took to the streets to show world leaders that we care about climate change in the lead up to the United Nations Climate Change Leaders Summit on September 23. In New York City, the epicenter of the People’s Climate March, hundreds of thousands of people came together to make a stand, unified in purpose with those attending the more than two thousand protests globally.  Check out pictures submitted by CCL members from their various communities across Canada here.
THE LITTLE ENGINE THAT COULD: At the UN Climate Summit last week, the call was clear — we need climate action now! The Climate CoLab Judges have selected 64 Finalist proposals that suggest action that can be taken now, submitted from people all around the world. Please add your vote to CCL's submission – Carbon Fee & Dividend.  Contest winners will be given the opportunity to present their proposals at a conference hosted at MIT, which will be attended by the folks who have the ability to implement the proposals.  Place your vote  here by midnight tonight.

TEAMWORK AND GRATITUDE: Over the past few months, some of our awesome volunteers have been working towards making CCL Canada bilingual with the generous help of Vox International Translation Services, whose employees have volunteered their time as well.  While the project is ongoing, we wanted to mark the release of our first French laser talks.  You can check them out here.  If you’re interested in getting involved with this project, please email
The Second Annual Citizens’ Climate Lobby (Canada) Conference and Lobbying Days, “Carbon Fee PROSPERITY/Frais Carbone PROSPÉRITÉ,” is coming up in Ottawa, November 22 – 24.   CCL Executive Director Mark Reynolds will lead a lobby training on the first day of the conference.  We have an all star line-up – too many stars to highlight just one person. 
Check out the photos from last year’s lobbying efforts, conference and costume party here.  Snail mail registration is now open and online registration will be up by Saturday, October 4, 2014 on our website here
We are not your typical environmental group. Our president and founder, Marshall Saunders says,
"The only revolution I want to be part of includes a lot of singing and dancing".
