This item will be on the agenda for our annual vestry meeting.

From the Synod Office:

'Our 2020 Social Justice Vestry Motion calls for strong federal action on climate change that will enable Canada to meet the emissions reduction targets of the Paris Accord, support a just transition to a low-carbon economy, particularly for workers employed in the oil and gas industries, and assist Indigenous and coastal communities and other vulnerable populations, to adapt to and mitigate the impacts of climate change on their local environments.  It also invites parishes to commit to increasing their own efforts to lower greenhouse gas emissions, in a way that is appropriate and achievable for them.'

See the attached documents for the motion itself and background information.
