Event

Environmental activists have called for climate marches in several cities on Friday, September 27, to call on government for action. Events are scheduled in Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, Montreal, and other cities.

In Toronto, participants plan to gather at Queen's Park at 11:00 (local time) and then march to the University area from 12:00 before returning to Queen's Park.

In Ottawa, participants will gather at Confederation Park at 11:00.

Those in Montreal will gather at the Statue de George-Étienne Cartier at the Parc du Mont-Royal at 12:00. Activist Greta Thunberg will be in attendance, which will likely prompt particularly heightened security measures.

A heightened security presence and localized transportation disruptions are expected along all protests and march routes. Additional protests in major urban areas are planned.

Advice

Individuals in Toronto are advised to monitor the situation, avoid all protests and demonstrations as a precaution, anticipate localized traffic disruptions and a heightened security presence near demonstration sites, and adhere to all instructions issued by the local authorities.
