Maryem’s three reasons

Toronto-Danforth candidate Maryem Tollar in front of a pink wallHere are three reasons why I’m running, and three reasons why I’m asking you to vote Green on September 20th:

  1. The climate crisis
  2. Guaranteed livable income
  3. Affordable housing

Follow the links to learn more about these reasons to vote Green. And explore this site to learn about other reasons — such as human rights, reconciliation with First Nations, ending fossil-fuel subsidies, and expanding health care.

A vote for Green Party is a vote for climate action and real change. Our future depends on it.

The climate crisis

In 2019, a report by Navius Research showed that neither the Liberals nor the NDP nor the Conservatives had a plan that came close to meeting the international goal of a 60% reduction in carbon emissions by 2030. The Green Party was the sole exception. Today, the plans of the other parties still fall far short. While they promise to significantly reduce carbon emissions, all three parties support new pipelines. Worse, the Liberals continue to subsidize fossil fuels: $23 billion to oil and gas companies since 2018. Not surprisingly, Canada is the only G7 country whose emissions continue to rise each year.

How bad do the wildfires have to get before we vote for a livable future for our children?
