PETITION TO THE HOUSE OF COMMONS IN PARLIAMENT ASSEMBLED
  
    Whereas:
    
      
        The government's 10-year transit plan will end in 2027;
        Action on public transit means action on climate change, as transportation is responsible for approximately 25 per cent of Canada's greenhouse gas emissions; and
        According to the Federation of Canadian Municipalities, a transition to zeroemission public transit can help Canada reach its 2030 Paris Climate Agreement commitments.
      
    
    We, the undersigned citizens and residents of Canada, call upon the House of Commons in Parliament assembled to:
    
      
        Establish a permanent federal funding mechanism for public transit that goes above and beyond the 10-year transit plan ending in 2027;
        Work together with all levels of government to provide sustainable, predictable, long-term, and adequate funding; and
        Establish accountability measures to ensure that all governments work together to increase access to public transit.
