12 noon: Rally at Yonge-Dundas Square - Toronto
On April 22, 1970, the environmental movement burst onto the political stage with one of the largest grassroots demonstrations ever seen. Let’s put the activism back into Earth Day with a rally to call on the Harper government to implement Kyoto, introduce mandatory emission reductions and support green energy.
1 pm: U-Turn Parade
The parade route goes from Yonge-Dundas Square (Toronto) to Queen and Spadina where we will do a U-turn back to Queen and John Street. Bring your banners, placards, and noisemakers to show the Harper government that we want an about-face on climate change policy.
2-4 pm: Street Festival (Queen and John Street)
Join Streets are for People
for a festive, interactive, all-ages celebration of Earth Day!
