At 9:30 am on October 28th, 27 young people were arrested today occupying the House of Commons calling on our newly elected MPs to come together, put partisan politics aside, and govern for a Green New Deal. Here’s a personal account from one of them.
Our Time is organizing an inter-generational alliance of voters to turn out to elect these champions and we really need your help in these critical races.
10 of our Green New Deal champions are running in some of the tightest races in the country. Here’s who they are and how you can support them.
Last night climate change was one of the most discussed issues during the English Federal Leaders’ Debate. Between the shouting matches and bickering over who is worse for Canada, and the significant air time wasted on a white nationalist like Maxime Bernier, 21 minutes were devoted to climate change. It came up during conversations about the economy, about leadership, about Indigenous rights, and other debate topics.
It’s E-18, and we’re still buzzing from last Friday’s massive climate strikes. That’s why today’s newsletter is a bit of a special edition. Instead of the usual format, we just wanted to highlight the next steps we’re taking to turn this outpouring of energy into momentum for a made-in-Canada Green New Deal.

It’s E-26, and big things are happening. Last week, more than 4 million people turned out for the first wave of Global Climate Strikes, and this Friday, millions more will take part in cross-Canada mobilizations during the second wave. Plus, just yesterday, we announced 16 new candidate endorsements, bringing our total number of Green New Deal champions to 29.
There are 33 days left to election day, and while the campaign is just getting going, Our Time is in full swing. Our message of the week: Millions of people around the world are joining the upcoming global climate strikes. Are our politicians paying attention?
