So what is The Leap Manifesto?
The Leap Manifesto is a vision for how Canada can tackle climate change in a way that changes the country, and the world, for the better. The Manifesto is available in twelve languages and counting, and has been signed by tens of thousands of people from all over, and all walks of life. From former Ontario Chief Justice Roy McMurtry to the head of Canada’s Jesuits; from Oxfam to the Council of Canadians to Idle No More; dozens of religious, labour and Indigenous leaders; cultural figures like Leonard Cohen, Ellen Page, Donald Sutherland and Arcade Fire and some of Canada’s largest public sector unions. Another example of change for the better, and just one of many hopeful moves by people coming together to effect change.
