The ReIGNITE Talks is a series that’s re-thinking and re-imagining our planet. Each month, Environmental Defence will aim to make sense of the world from an environmental perspective – digging into current news events with in depth analysis and expertise – all while finding real-world solutions to shift Canada towards a sustainable future.
In our first episode, we’ll explore not only how vehicle pollution harms our health, but particularly harms people living near major roads and highways. It is one of many reasons that low-income, racialized and marginalized communities have less access to clean air.
Join our live talk to hear from Darnel Harris from Our Greenway Conservancy and Sabat Ismail, member of Transportation Equity Toronto, as they share examples of community-led solutions for equitable access to transportation in Toronto neighbourhoods that are most impacted by traffic pollution.
