Subject: Adopt a Green New Deal to Create a Just Recovery for All

Dear, [Mr/Mrs/Right Honourable/etc]

I am a [resident/constituent/citizen] of [riding/ward/constituency/province/city] and I wanted to personally contact your office regarding the adoption of a Green New Deal for [Alberta/Canada/Calgary]. I [am a student/or work in the BLANK industry], and I am concerned for [my future, future of the planet, children’s future, etc]. The IPCC’s (Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change) 2018 report demonstrates that humanity only has till 2030 to cut emissions in half and reach net zero emissions by 2050 in order to maintain global average temperatures below 1.5 degrees celsius. I highly encourage you to read this report if you have not done so.

The Green New Deal offers solutions to carry our [provinces/cities/countries/] weight in cutting our emissions while maintaining and expanding our economy and social support structures.  I believe in the principles and policies of the Green New Deal, specifically [transportation, jobs, energy, housing, food security, etc (Elaborate as to why you like this policy)]. As my elected official, it is my hope that you will hear my concerns and use the power voters have given you to enact the set of policies included in the Green New Deal.

Thank you for your time, I look forward to seeing your actions in implementing the Green New Deal for [Calgary/Alberta/Canada]


[Your First and Last Name]
