Mobilizing Canada for the climate emergency: How proportional representation can help.
What do proportional representation and citizens’ assemblies have to do with climate change?
In this webinar hosted by Fair Vote Toronto, Seth Klein will discuss:
the political obstacles that have undermined concerted climate action since scientists first warned of the climate crisis close to 40 years ago
what lessons we can learn from what Canada achieved during the Second World War, when our country faced a different kind of existential threat
and what role proportional representation and citizens’ assemblies can play in producing climate solutions
