ParisOver 1,600 Global Climate Marches have been planned on November 29th, amounting to the largest climate mobilization that the world has seen to date.

In Canada, the newly elected federal government has yet to announce its climate strategy. Justin Trudeau made numerous statements on the campaign trail suggesting climate change is a priority, including announcing an aim to end subsidies for fossil fuels and subsidize renewable energy.

Vancouver’s Global Climate March has been organized by a coalition, known as Climate Convergence, representative of many progressive groups in Vancouver. Attendees are expected from a wide range of concerned citizens, indigenous, environmental, faith and arts groups, as well as unions.
