Petition to the Government of Canada


  • The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change has warned us repeatedly that rising temperatures over the next two decades, if left unabated, will bring "widespread devastation and extreme weather";
  • The summer of 2023 was the hottest three months globally on record, and Canada is experienced the most severe wildfire season on record;
  • In the past decade, over 85% of gases that are warming our planet, greenhouse gases, come from burning fossil fuels;
  • Canada's oil and gas sector is our fastest and largest sector of greenhouse gas emissions; and
  • In 2021, the federal government committed to "cap and cut emissions from the oil and gas sector to achieve net-zero emissions by 2050."

WE, the undersigned residents of Canada, call on the federal government to move forward immediately with a bold emissions caps for the oil and gas sector that are comprehensive in scope and realistic in achieving an interim and science-based target of reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 2030.

Presented to the House of Commons
