Your first step to building a post-carbon community in Charlottetown

The Canadian not-for-profit Wilderness Committee has launched a nation-wide email writing campaign to urge citizens to contact their local leaders and ask them to get started with building a post-carbon community:

Scientists tell us to maintain a safe climate, we need to eliminate carbon pollution by 2050. That means rethinking the way we move, build, eat and work, starting with bold policies from the bottom up

Communities from coast to coast are working to eliminate carbon pollution. Together, we can build a better quality of life even as we respond to the climate emergency. It’s time.

Imagine Charlottetown ten years from now

  • Parking lots and garages have been transformed into community gardens and affordable housing.
  • Worker-owned restaurants and shops sit side by side along tree-filled major arteries with wide sidewalks and active transportation lanes. 
  • A publicly owned transit service carries people throughout downtown and beyond, free of charge. 

Speak up by using the Wilderness Committeeʼs online action tool (click here) with an easy-to-fill text box and suggestions to help you compose your message.

The first three suggestions fit Charlottetown perfectly. Pick one — or two, or several — add examples or your own thoughts if you wish, fill in your name and address, and click “Send your letter”.

Because of the different municipal council structures across the provinces, a Charlottetown address will trigger a message to the Mayor and the writerʼs ward councillor — and possibly to Charlottetown MP Sean Casey.
