Spam: unsolicited digital communication.

The election is over and Justin Trudeau is still the Prime Minister. He’ll be working to form a new government with the other parties. We have 48 hours for him to announce addressing the climate emergency is his priority!

We are calling on you to contact Justin Trudeau on all his social media channels, by phone and email non-stop (spam him for the planet!). We will give him 48 hours to get back to us publicly to demonstrate his political and climate courage.

We can take advantage of the first hours of his mandate to set the tone for our mobilization and influence his priorities. We are determined to be heard and we’re ready to take all measures necessary.

We demand the implementation of a climate emergency response plan with immediate and concrete measures that respond to the scale of the crisis.

We need this to be implemented NOW.

See the details of what this plan must entail

How will we achieve this?

Participate in all the tactics below !

Tactic 1: Spam your PM on his Social Media accounts

For Justin Trudeau to notice you and listen to you, one post will not be enough. You’ll have to post 3, 5, 10 times a day (or more!) for the next 48 hrs (go for it: spam him ;-)).

Tactic 2: Call the Prime Minister until he answers… Or leave a message and start over!

  1. A little nervous? It’s normal. Take a deep breath and take action. Climate action requires courage and we know you have it in you.
  2. Dial 1-613-992-4211 to reach Justin Trudeau’s Parliament office and 1-514-277-6020 to reach his Montreal office.
  3. Express calmly and respectfully why it’s urgent for our Prime Minister Justin Trudeau to take immediate and concrete measures to address the climate emergency.

Here’s a script you can use to inspire your conversation. You can share all of the demands in one phone call, but we recommend to do one call for each demand (spam him!):

Hi M Justin Trudeau,

The election is over and you are still the Prime Minister. You will be working to form a new government with the other parties in a climate emergency context. Now you have to act.

I need you to develop and implement a climate emergency response plan. That means immediate and concrete measures, that respond to the scale of the crisis.They must be aligned with the best available science.

  1. I expect you to eliminate all carbon emissions by 2050 to avoid the worst. We know you know what you have to do to meet agreed upon climate targets.
  2. I want your emergency climate response plan to ensure everyone in my community has a good job.
  3. I need you to take the power back and stop letting Big Oil companies influence your decisions. Your policies must be for the people, not the millionaires.
  4. Stop putting extractive industries interests before Indigenous rights. I want you to implement free, prior and informed consent for all Indigenous communities coast to coast to coast.

Thank you for your time and I will be calling you back to follow up!

You must eliminate all carbon emissions by 2050 to avoid the worst. I know you know what you have to do to meet agreed upon climate targets.

Your emergency climate response plan must ensure everyone in my community has a good job.

You must also take back the power and stop letting Big Oil companies influence your decisions. Your policies must be for the people, not the millionaires.

Stop putting the interests of extractive industries before Indigenous rights. I want you to implement free, prior and informed consent for all Indigenous communities across Canada.
