Demonstrators from a huge diversity of organizations marched boisterously through downtown Toronto on Sunday calling for a paradigm-shift in how climate change is addressed.

Not a typical protest of environmentalists, it attracted labour unions, First Nations, anti-poverty and faith groups, health workers and immigration rights activists who all underlined the need to change an economic system so it “works for people and the planet.”

Marchers carried banners broadcasting a wide range of demands but were united around a single message: that tackling climate change can make society much more fair and equitable.
