Mayor Tory finally commits to funding climate action - but keep the champagne corked

Toronto Environmental Alliance February 06, 2018

Today, Toronto’s Executive Committee put forward a request for $2.5 million in the 2018 City Budget to fund the TransformTO climate action plan. This is good news considering that when the draft budget was released in November, no funding was allocated to TransformTO. In response, an incredible number of residents and advocates contacted the Mayor and City Councillors to demand funding for TransformTO - and it worked. But even with $2.5 million in funding, Toronto is still falling short on funding climate action.
