Dear Green Neighbours

April is Earth Month - with April 22 as official Earth Day.  Our Urban Ag section is jam-packed with spring announcements and opportunities to connect with the natural world in the city.  Our local Ward 11 Community Environment Day is coming up on May 7 - Green 11 will be there in person and looks forward to connecting with you and connecting you with green resources around the city. The Ontario provincial election is around the corner on June 2 - we have a section devoted to ways you can help push environmental issues to the front of the conversation.   Finally, for those trying to pick through the latest IPCC report on Climate, here is a succinct twitter thread by Canada’s Sarah Burch, Canada Research Chair and report lead author.

Green 11 is a non-partisan, grassroots, volunteer-driven community group working on environmental and climate change related issues in Ward 11, University-Rosedale. Green 11 is a founding member group of the Green Neighbours Network of Toronto.

If there is a green initiative that you are interested in starting and recruiting volunteers for, please get in touch with us and we will see how we can support you. If you are wondering if people in Ward 11 are working on a particular green project, get in touch with us and we might be able to point you in the right direction.

Green 11 Profile
Recognition of Green 11 member Helen Mills’ Lifetime Achievement Award from Wellington Water Watchers
At the Water Watchers Awards Gala on March 24th, Helen received this much-deserved award - a great way to celebrate World Water Day!

Helen has been a tireless champion of the environment and particularly the waters in the GTA. She founded the Lost Rivers project in 1994, sharing her wonderment of water in urban settings. She subsequently established the Rivers Rising program and the RainScape TO rain-garden organization.

Helen is a lover of rivers and river valleys, with a degree in philosophy from the U of T and one in art from OCADU. She believes that we protect what we love and need to remedy our disconnection with nature. Her current focus is an interactive maps project of the lost rivers of Toronto.

Helen described receiving the award as “A huge nice shock” and thanked the Toronto Green Community as well as past and current members of Lost Rivers and RainScape. She encouraged people to “Start from your heart, follow your dream, make mistakes and learn”, and said that her “most profound learning was through connection with Indigenous water walkers”.

Calls to Action

Urge the federal government to substantially improve Bill S-5
According to Canadian Environmental Law Association (CELA), Canada's cornerstone environmental legislation needs to be fixed. The federal government recently introduced Bill S-5 in the Senate, an Act to Amend the Canadian Environmental Protection Act (CEPA), containing the first major amendments to CEPA in over 20 years.  CELA has drafted amendments to strengthen CEPA and better protect human health and the environment from toxic substances. You can send an email to Minister of Environment and Climate Change Steven Guilbeault and Minister of Health Jean-Yves Duclos today, asking them to add CELA's recommended amendments to Bill S-5 before the Bill goes to Committee. (You can use content from the CELA blog post.)

Call on Canada’s major banks to stop financing fossil fuels
Rainforest Action Network just released their 2022 edition of the Banking on Climate Chaos report and Canada’s Big Five – RBC, CIBC, BMO, TD, and Scotiabank – have increased their fossil fuel funding by 70% since 2020. These banks are essentially using our money, our savings, to invest in the dirty business of fossil fuels while making public commitments to respect Indigenous rights and to act on the climate emergency. We need to call out these banks for continuously placing profit over the planet, over Indigenous sovereignty, and over our wellbeing. You can sign the Greenpeace petition.

Ask for Free TTC-GO Transfers in Toronto
The province of Ontario is getting rid of double fares between GO Transit and local transit agencies in Mississauga, York Region, and Durham Region, but the TTC has been left out. Ask the provincial party leaders if they will commit to free transfers between TTC, GO, and Union Pearson Express within Toronto. Ontario political parties are deciding on their election platforms now. You can make a difference by using TTCriders email tool to send a quick question to all provincial party leaders. Find out more and take action here.
 

Mercury Justice for Grassy Narrows
An online rally for Grassy Narrows was held March 26. If you missed the Rally you can still watch the video and learn more about how you can help promote the River Run coming to Toronto this summer. Check out and share this interview with Rally Speaker, Chrissy Issacs and listen to this interview with Adam Beach in the lead-up to the rally posted by CBC.  You can take action to support Grassy Narrows - Keep making phone calls to Federal and Provincial politicians to demand Mercury Justice for Grassy Narrows - and send SM messages calling for Mercury Justice to these politicians as well (#FreeGrassy).

Survey: Ontario "Best Practices" on Source Water Protection
Certain types of drinking water systems serving millions of Ontarians (e.g., private wells, Indigenous systems, and even some municipal systems) are not covered by the mandatory protective policies set out in Source Protection Plans approved under the Clean Water Act (CWA). However, rather than extending the coverage of the CWA to such systems, the Ministry of the Environment, Conservation and Parks has instead released guidance materials that simply identify discretionary "best practices" to help safeguard sources of water supplying non-municipal systems. The Ministry is soliciting public feedback on these measures in an online survey until April 18, 2022. Read CELA’s opinion on the measures: Water Wells Remain at Risk in Ontario

Secondhand Sunday Returns April 24!

To participate, simply leave the items on your property next to the sidewalk or curb for your neighbours to take for free. And you can get in on the action too! As the saying goes; one person's trash is another person's treasure. You might not need it but it might be something your neighbour is looking for!

Take action for a ReusableTO: campaign leading up to the City vote in May
Toronto Council will be voting on proposed single-use item regulations this spring (May and June). However, there's a chance councillors will get cold feet and water down the regulations, or delay them! In addition, the regulations just aren't good enough: we need the City to go further and pass regulations to require reusables to truly reduce single-use. Read TEA's blog post here to learn more about this issue. Toronto residents, groups, and businesses (including venues) have from now through May to take action to show support for the best regulations for reducing single-use plastic items and supporting reusables across Toronto. You can email council to encourage them to vote for the best regulations.
