Climate change is unquestionably affecting Ontarians in countless ways, from uncontrollable forest fires in the north to extreme heatwaves in the south. Upon recognition of these impacts, Canada has adopted a target of net-zero by 2050 as one potential solution to the climate crisis. Can we achieve this? What would it take? What would we love about it? And are we on track? Dianne Saxe will present her plan for Ontario in this talk.
