Today July 3rd, students and youth across Canada are turning up the heat. They are demanding that politicians across the political spectrum get serious about climate change, with sit ins confirmed across the country in 7 offices happening simultaneously. In Montreal, over 20 local youth have staged sit-ins at NDP leader Thomas Mulcair and Liberal Party of Canada leader Justin Trudeau’s Montreal constituency offices to call on the party leaders to commit to freeze tar sands expansion and drive a transition to a renewable energy economy in Canada.

CKUT member Anouk Millet talked with Kristen Perry, a member of the sit-in at Thomas Mulcair’s office, and Julianna Duholke, who participated to the sit-in at Justin Trudeau’s bureau.
