Sign Up for the Act on Climate March in Quebec!

Saturday, April 11, 2015 at 01:00 PM · 144 rsvps
Quebec's National Assembly

Join us and thousands of others who will make a historic trek to Quebec City on April 11 to demand that we Act on Climate!

All of Canada’s premiers are heading to Quebec City at that time to talk about climate. And so are we. We want to make sure our voices are heard, and send a unified message.

We want strong climate protections. We want renewable energy. What we don’t want is more tar sands or pipeline expansion, including Energy East.

Please sign up below to book a space on a bus to Quebec City.

We will aim to leave at 7am on the 11th, and return by 10pm that same night. If you'd like to make other arrangements for your return, please let us know.

Please check back on this page and in your inbox for final details on bus pickup and dropoff locations.

After signing up, you will be taken to a page asking for donations to help cover the cost of renting the bus and paying the driver.

We hope to see you there!

On behalf of Ecology Ottawa, the Council of Canadians, 350 Ottawa, Climate Reality Canada, and Greenpeace Ottawa.

Dans seulement 30 jours, des dizaines de milliers de personnes se retrouveront dans la ville de Québec pour « Action Climat » qui sera sans doute la plus grande marche jamais faite au Canada en faveur du climat.

Tous les ministres du Canada  seront présents à Québec à cette date pour parler du climat. Et nous aussi. Nous voulons être surs d’être entendus et d’envoyer un message uni.

Nous voulons une forte protection du climat. Nous voulons l’énergie renouvelable. Nous ne voulons pas de sables bitumeux ou de prolongement de gazoduc, y compris Energy East.

Nous espérons que vous vous joindrez à nous à Québec. Nous allons réserver des bus et nous avons besoin de savoir dans les prochaines semaines si vous pourrez venir.

Répondez dès maintenant si vous le pouvez.

On se voit bientôt j’espère!

Au nom de Écologie Ottawa, Le conseil des canadiens, 350 Ottawa, Réalité Climatique Canada et Greenpeace Ottawa.

 

Tree Ottawa Workshop

Wednesday, April 22, 2015 at 07:00 PM · 5 rsvps

Everyone loves trees! This Earth Day, Wednesday April 22nd, Ecology Ottawa and RBC are hosting a special event to share the work of Tree Ottawa and discuss the importance of trees to our city. 

We are very excited to have Ed Lawrence joining us to share his vast knowledge and many years of experience. Throughout his career Ed was head gardener to six Canadian Governors General and Prime Ministers, and can be heard weekly on CBC Radio's Ontario Today.

Other guests will be joining us to share their expertise on how we can pull together as a community and protect, plant, and promote Ottawa's trees for generations to come!

Admission is free, with donations gratefully accepted. Space is limited, so please RSVP!
