Climate activist Naomi Klein has launched a star-studded and sweeping “manifesto for the planet” that calls for an end to fossil fuel dependence and new economic order for Canada.
The “Leap Manifesto” debuted with support from a predictable cast of climate and social justice activists, including David Suzuki, Greenpeace, Oxfam, The Council of Canadians and social justice activist Stephen Lewis.
But it also has dozens of celebrity signatories, including Leonard Cohen, director Denis Villeneuve and actors Sarah Polley, Rachel McAdams, Ellen Page, Tantoo Cardinal and Donald Sutherland. Award-winning author Joseph Boyden, high-profile lawyer Clayton Ruby, CUPE president Paul Moist and Mrs. Universe Ashley Callingbull joined Klein, Lewis, Suzuki and others at the announcement.
