350.org issues Truth or Dare to Stephen Harper; Naomi Klein and other Canadians take part

(Toronto)--Prime Minister Stephen Harper has decided not to attend the UN Climate Summit, against the wishes of thousands of Canadians.

The UN Climate Summit starts today in New York City. UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon has called world leaders together to address the climate crisis, and to create effective and binding commitments to reduce fossil fuel emissions and strengthen political actions toward climate justice.

350.org has been gathering photos of Canadians holding Truths about Canada’s inaction on climate change and Dares to Prime Minister Harper.

350.org will project photos of these Truths and Dares onto the Canadian Consulate in New York City.
