The Climate Action Network is going on tour to find out what
Canadians want in a Kyoto plan to address the climate crisis. The
Climate Action Tour 2006 will present a series of workshops for
Canadians to design a climate action plan.

The tour is a response to the federal government's cut to climate
programs and its announced intention to create a "Made in Canada
Plan". Local CAN-RAC members are arranging over 18 workshops across
Canadian cities, including Montreal, Halifax, Toronto, Winnipeg,
Saskatoon, Yellowknife, Quebec, Ottawa, St. John's, Truro and

Each workshop will include background information about climate
change, Canada's greenhouse gas emissions and existing climate change
programs. However a majority of the time will be devoted to gathering
input from individual Canadians. A summary of the recommendations
from the session will be presented to Prime Minister Stephen Harper
in the fall.

Registration for this workshop is required by 5pm Tuesday Oct. 11th.
