Join MEJC for a presentation & faciliated group discussion on the role of carbon pricing in Manitoba.
We want to engage with and consult our supporters & allies on the question of carbon pricing in Manitoba. We are attending a round table with the provincial government the next day and want to consult with you to make sure we are doing our best to represent the grassroots voices on this crucial issue. We did amazing work in Manitoba during the federal consultation process and now we have a chance to follow up and create some tangible principles and ideas to make sure that a climate plan in Manitoba respects Indigenous rights, and promotes a just transition.
