Action Alert: Tell Alberta you want green electricity!

Feb 4 2009 - 5:00pm

This week, Canada failed to join the International Renewable Energy Agency. Next, the federal budget effectively ended all major support for new renewable energy development in Canada. Wouldn't it be great if Alberta could turn from being the owners of the biggest global warming crime ever to leaders in sustainable green electricity?

This action alert contains two actions:

On Feb 4, the Energy Day of Action,

  1. Demand green electricity by phone or through your MLA.
  2. Tell your MLA you want no new approvals in the Tar Sands.
  3. demand legislation for a Feed-in-tariff system for small scale renewables producers.
