Explore not only how vehicle pollution harms our health, but particularly harms people living near major roads and highways. It is one of many reasons that low-income, racialized and marginalized communities have less access to clean air.
Join this live talk to hear from Darnel Harris from Our Greenway Conservancy and Sabat Ismail, member of Transportation Equity Toronto, as they share examples of community-led solutions for equitable access to transportation in Toronto neighbourhoods that are most impacted by traffic pollution.
As COVID 19 has swept across the planet, a great deal of attention has been focused on human health and socio-economic fallout.

This webinar is hosted by the Sustainability Network. Cost:$10.

Doug Ford wants to ramp up the output of our gas-fired power plants by more than 300% by 2025.
To help fuel this massive increase in fossil fuel electricity generation, Enbridge wants to import fracked gas from Pennsylvania by building a giant pipeline in Hamilton -- a pipeline that would degrade Hamilton's Beverly Swamp provincially significant wetland and raise Enbridge’s gas rates by $120 million.
If Doug Ford and Enbridge get their way, Ontario will blow way past its 2030 Climate Protection target.
