Simply Put...

We are recommending that City Council approve an ongoing informational campaign about the negative effects of gasoline using labels similar to the information labels you see on cigarette packages.

Background

In 2013, Our Horizon approached the Youth Council and made a presentation to the Public Transportation Committee, followed by the entire Youth Council to gain support for their campaign to put warning labels on gas pump nozzles.

Since, the Our horizon team has been traveling across Canada and making international headlines.

Amplifying the Youth Voice

At their meeting on February 9, 2013 the Youth Council endorsed the Our Horizon Campaign and has recommended that Toronto City Council require all vendors of gasoline to post warning labels on gas pumps and establish an outreach program with the goal of educating the public about this plan to tackle climate change.
