Five Reports to the Ford Government on Climate Adaptation Finally Released

The Ontario Project Group of Seniors for Climate Action (SCAN) has launched "an Adaptation Campaign to push for action on climate adaptation from the Ford government. There’s no doubt Ontario is experiencing climate breakdown. Wildfires, violent storms, heat waves, drought, tornadoes, and floods are causing incalculable costs in human lives and social and economic impacts across the province. Some provinces are taking action to protect residents from climate impacts, but Ontario is sending us backwards and wasting precious time. Ford’s Minister of Natural Resources and Forestry, Graydon Smith, pretty much summed up the Ford government’s hands-off approach when he said, “People need to take a level of personal responsibility.” 

Yet there has never been a clearer time for the Ontario government to act on the climate crisis!"

SCAN has been fiercely determined, as reported in this article in The Energy Mix.

Seniors For Climate Action Now have tenaciously pursued the release of 5  important reports. Read their account here. That article links through to the 5 reports:  

 1/ Ontario Provincial Climate Change Impact Assessment - Summary Report, January 2023    

2/ Recommendations to improve the climate resilience of homes, communities, and public infrastructure in Ontario by the Advisory Panel on Climate Change, November 2021
