Citizens’ Climate Lobby Canada has been creating the political will for a national and revenue neutral carbon tax one riding at a time since September 2010. Currently, our volunteers in Canada cover just over 60 ridings. As a collective, we have lobbied eight times in Ottawa for a carbon tax since November 2011. In total we have lobbied 91 federal parliamentarians and 45 provincial parliamentarians, many of them repeatedly in Ottawa and our home ridings.
