    Consider the potential negative environmental impact in every decision I make and always try to choose the option with the most neutral or positive environmental impact, even if means incurring additional costs.

    Continue to lobby our Federal government to end fossil fuel subsidies. These are unacceptable to me. As a small business owner, I get nothing in the way of “federal subsidies” related to the rising cost of raw produce, as climate change externalities implicate my business. And yet, the very industries that contribute most significantly to this problem continue to get government support. This has to stop. It’s the only way the Carbon Tax will be TRULY effective. Thank you.

    I have managed the 3 R’s my entire life. I live in the country and have shared my love for the outdoors with everyone I meet. Every generation can leave a smaller foot print than the one before them if they respect the land that feeds them. Request government to regulate energy so everyone can afford the heat their homes with energy efficient clean fuel.

    Because I am an educated parent who understands the threat of Climate Change and cares deeply about my children’s future I try to do everything reasonably possible to minimize our household footprint ( e.g. solar photovoltaic, electric vehicle, minimizing livestock consumption esp. beef, purchasing 4X offsets to make up for previous emissions ), encourage others to pursue more sustainable lifestyles ( e.g. volunteer with & support sustainable groups, share information socially ), and implement sustainable policy ( e.g. working with all levels of government via petitions, phone calls, letters, personal visits, and active participation ).

    We need government policies to change what is done on massive levels in industrial sectors. Individual actions count for little in comparison. I walk or take public transit, don't eat meat, use minimal water, compost, etc., but people like me will not bring the larger changes necessary. I buy the products available to me, and if policy is not in place to make sure that sustainable products are affordable, then my intentions are irrelevant. Why are homes still being built with regular concrete? Why does all the toilet paper on the shelves still come from trees? Why has the technology not been supported to make hemp ethanol when hemp makes 10 times the ethanol per acre than corn, and actually creates arable land by transforming otherwise useless soil? These are system changes that are needed, not individual changes. "The war must be won before it's begun" (Sun Zi). People will use what is available to them.Hemp must be used for all toilet paper production, as a start, to reduce deforestation. At least 4 times as much paper can be made from an acre of hemp than from an acre of trees, and it takes only months to grow. Stores can now buy hemp toilet paper for 20 cents per role from Alibaba.com. We must also use hemp-concrete (hemp fibre, lime, and water) rather than concrete. Hemp-concrete biodegrades when underground (not used for foundations) and can be used for all above ground structures from walls to roofs, supports, etc. and is stronger than concrete, getting more dense over time. We must grow hemp everywhere possible in order to absorb CO2 from the air and lock that CO2 into what is build with Hemp. Hemp also reverses soil erosion and grows in any soil with enough water, meaning it can vastly expand arable lands and allow for organic agriculture.Please reconsider deep tilling agriculture in light of the following scientific articles. Not only does deep tilling cause extreme amounts of greenhouse gas by way of water vapour (the most abundant greenhouse gas), but the same industrial farms that deep till use pesticides that account for the insect apocalypse which is leading towards ecological collapse. For truly sustainable farming practices, see the movie "Think global act urban / Solutions locales pour un désordre global (2010)"https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3q_xzQ7pRi4&t=90shttps://www.lajuntatribunedemocrat.com/news/20190218/soil-ecologist-challenges-mainstream-thinking-on-climate-changehttps://www.forbes.com/sites/marshallshepherd/2016/06/20/water-vapor-vs-carbon-dioxide-which-wins-in-climate-warming/#7ec310b03238An entire generation of youth now has to question if they should have children as they will not be able to die of natural causes. This is the urgency of our situation and need for real change. Complacency is no longer an option. Mars is not an option, and you wouldn't be on that ship if it was, so get up with it already."

    I will reduce my Uber / Lyft use. I will continue to voice my support for carbon pricing and other fiscal measures that send the right market signals to shift to zero GHG emissions in 12 years. I will boost my charitable contributions to conservation or grassroots organizations that think globally and act locally in support of environmental values aligned with my own.

    I want to join the FSDS, to have a more active collaboration, how can I proceed?In my case and with our company, I hope in these next 3 years we want to apply the products we developed for more than 10 years, and share our knowledge and experiences with those who need it, training, awareness, application, our main interest is to help mitigate the impact it will have on the lives of all climate change, and help both implement and develop our technologies, energy efficiency, sustainability, energy generation, chemical substitution and so on ...and to help the industry of this sector to change concepts of production, use of materials, energy, efficiency, our objective is to approve the regulatory framework of Canada to enhance everything that surrounds climate change, from early childhood education, to new careers that will arise in new technologies, in the recovery of polluted spaces, protection of the environment, but at the same time, make the country grow economically, create many jobs, and give our future generations an opportunity for a better life than ours, being ecology, sustainability and environmental values, those that predominate in the future, in the minds of citizens.
