Speculation tax

Canada was the first nation to support a transaction tax to reduce financial speculation. Other G20 nations promote it to stabilize the economy. A Green government would implement it.

Nuclear weapons ban

The Green Party joins over 500 Order of Canada recipients and UN Secretary General Ban Ki Moon in calling for nuclear disarmament.

Ethical trade

We need trade which raises global workplace standards, not agreements to let multinational corporations avoid environmental, safety and labour standards.The Green Party demands changes to NAFTA to protect Canadian resources.


Combat in Afghanistan is a futile and dangerous mess. We need to stabilize the country by rebuilding infrastructure instead.The Green Party supports the Senlis Council recommendations, endorsed by the European union, to break the pattern of drugs and violence in Afghanistan.


Humanity is conducting an unintended, uncontrolled, globally pervasive experiment whose ultimate consequences could be second only to a global nuclear war.
consensus statement from the 1998 conference on “The Changing Climate” in Toronto

Our current government is obstructing progress on fighting climate change. We need good faith negotiations and a solid plan to achieve ambitious goals to re-establish our leadership.

Adriana is the one candidate, and the Green Party is the one party, that can be counted on to deal with the greatest threat to the future well-being of the human race — global warming.
Danny Harvey, Lead Author, UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change

The green Party plan calls for:

  • a good faith and best science approach to multilateral negotiations
  • an emissions reduction target of 30% below 1990 levels by 2020, 85% by 2040
  • an average tax reduction of $1000 for each Canadian paid by a fee on global warming emissions
  • dramatically improved standards in vehicle and appliance efficiency
  • a rapid introduction of an all-electric fleet
  • community-led public transit development
  • community-led renewable power
  • investment in high speed rail
  • working with Provinces to build a national clean energy electric grid
  • a dramatically improved national building standard
  • funding for home retrofits

In Parliament I will promote leadership on:

  • a global financial transaction tax to help stabilize the world economy
  • a nuclear weapons ban
  • a principle of Fair Trade over Free Trade
  • withdrawing from combat in Afghanistan and promoting peace through rebuilding
  • a good faith and best science approach to international climate negotiations
  • a comprehensive emissions reduction strategy to make Canada a leader in green technology
Adriana Mugnatto-Hamu is the Climate Change critic for the Green Party of Canada. She has become actively involved in politics to help fill the lack of adequate commitment to climate change concerns. She has spent most of her life actively involved in human rights issues and the last few years working with non-partisan groups concerned with climate change.

She was a founding member of the Next Generation and of the Toronto Energy Coalition, which fought the Portlands Energy Centre. She was a principal organizer for the Canadians for Kyoto rally in 2007 which brought thousands to Nathan Philips Square. In 2008 she walked from Toronto to Ottawa for the Sunshine Walk for Climate Justice. She was the principal organizer of the Climate Change Conference at Hart House in 2010. She has also been involved with JustEarth, the Toronto Climate Campaign and the KyotoPlus initiative. From 2006 to 2010, she chaired the local Riverdale group of Amnesty International.
