Public consultation begins
The government opened its online consultation on Quebec's energy future to citizens from June 2 to August 1.
Participation in the consultation: mobilizing citizens and experts
Équiterre encouraged Quebecers to take part in the consultation and make their voices heard by sending a pre-written email.
Start of the mobilization tour across Quebec!
Équiterre toured Quebec to screen the film "Après La Romaine" and held public discussions about Quebec's energy's future.
Education and mobilization on the energy transition
Équiterre held a webinar to present the key principles of our vision of a carbon-neutral, equitable and environmentally-responsible energy future for Quebec. Watch the webinar.
We encouraged our supporters to reach out to their Members of the National Assembly (MNAs) to share these key principles.
Denying out demands and those of over 100 environmental and citizens' groups, the government did not agree to mandate the BAPE for its consultation on Quebec's energy future. On April 26, the government announced that it would consult experts and the public, however, the format of the consultation left much to be desired. Read our joint reaction.
We worked to clarify the truth about our energy needs and capacities in Quebec and to bust some myths. Read our article.
In collaboration with the G15+, we reminded the government of the importance of holding a BAPE-led consultation. Read our press release.
Along with 100 other groups, we reiterated our request to the government to mandate the BAPE (Bureau d'audiences publiques sur l'environnement) to hold a generic consultation on Quebec's energy future. Have a look at our press release and joint letter.
Following our petition, we began to talk publicly about how Quebec's energy future is on the verge of a structural overhaul, in order to make people aware of the issues and the consequences. Read our open letter.
We launched a petition asking for a generic consultation by the Bureau d'audiences publiques sur l'environnement (BAPE) that was signed by 11,000 people.
