MD Moms 4 Healthy Recovery is a group of physicians from across Canada who are mothers. We have spent COVID19 working to keep our patients and our communities safe. Though difficult, we have been honoured to be able to serve our fellow citizens.
But we do NOT want a future of repetitive health emergencies. COVID19 is a planetary health emergency. It will not be the last. This is the moment to invest fully in a sustainable future for Canada and do everything possible to reduce the frequency and severity of future planetary health emergencies that will be the new normal if climate change is left unchecked.
We came together to create this video asking the Government of Canada to ensure that Canada's recovery from COVID19 prioritizes a rapid decarbonization of the Canadian economy, is free of any fossil fuel subsidies, and follows the recommendations from the Canadian Association of Physicians for the Environment (CAPE).
