Instructions & Phone Numbers for Today | Let’s Jam the Phone Lines!

The global climate wake-up call is here! Now all of us can get involved from home — by making a phone-call to our own governments, or following this extraordinary day of action as it unfolds around the world.

Phone calls and action is especially crucial in Canada, where Parliament is debating the Climate Change Accountability Act (Bill C-311). If passed, the Act would require whomever is in government to set science-based targets to fight global warming, and the government would have to implement a credible plan to meet those targets — something Canada is sorely lacking today. That’s why it’s vital that we get our climate action message through to Canadian politicians.

Let’s flood them with calls urging them to vote for Bill C-311. This Monday, after 12.18pm, call parliament and talk to your MP — 1 (866) 599-4999 — or call other key decision-makers on climate:

Prime Minister Stephen Harper
Toll-free: 1 (866) 599-4999 // Telephone: (+1) (613) 992-4793

Minister of the Environment Jim Prentice
Toll-free: 1 (866) 599-4999 / Telephone: (+1) (613) 992-4793

H.E. Mr. Michael Martin

Canada’s chief negotiator and ambassador for climate change:

Michael.martin@ec.gc.ca

Phone: 1 (819) 956-7608

Minister of Industry Tony Clement
Toll-free: 1 (866) 599-4999 / Telephone: (+1) (613) 992-4793
Parliament General Switchboard
Toll-free 1 (866) 599-4999 / Telephone: (+1) (613) 992-4793

Here’s what you can tell your politicians when you call:

"Parliament needs to address the dangerous effects of global warming and pass legislation that sets science-based targets. The Climate Change Accountability Act – Bill C-311 – is a good start, and Canadians are watching. We want to see Bill C-311 passed before the world heads to Copenhagen in December."

Make at least one call, and if you don’t get through, it’s probably because we’re jamming the phone-lines and it’s working
