If we want a stable climate, what matters most is not what year we reach net zero, but how much more climate pollution we release between now and then, whether net zero means real zero, and if reaching net zero can also help heal inequality and biodiversity collapse.

MP Elect Mike Morrice has spent his career bringing people together. Whether working with different levels of government or not for profit organizations, Mike has a proven record of introducing ambitious ideas along with finding the funds to pay for them. He is the founder of Sustainable Waterloo Region, co-creator of ClimateActionWR, and piloted Canada’s first Green Economy Hub.
