COP27 and Human Rights in Egypt
ClimateFast is deeply troubled by the fact that the COP 27 is being held in Egypt, an extremely repressive police state where the rights to freedom of expression, association and peaceful assembly are harshly repressed and infractions are met with torture, incarceration and even death.
In those circumstances, ClimateFast doesn’t feel that Canada can be part of the much needed International climate negotiations leading to a successful, inclusive and participatory climate summit without bearing witness to and demanding the end of state repression of civil society in Egypt.

Questions for Toronto Municipal Election Candidates
Municipal elections will take place across Ontario on October 24, 2022.
Municipal elections are important! Local elections have the lowest participation of any elections in Canada, even though municipal policies have a huge impact on overall community well-being. Many people don’t realize that residents have more power to make change happen at the local level than at the provincial or federal levels, which are more heavily influenced by the vested interests of corporate lobbyists.
