According to a federal government request for tender, Environment and Climate Change Canada and the National Capital Region requires the services of shuttle bus drivers to transport Environment and Climate Change Canada and other federal government employees to and from their respective offices using Environment Canada supplied vehicles.
Two shuttles will be operating for nine and a half hours per day on an ongoing basis. One van and one larger 15 passenger van. Fuel will be paid by Environment and Climate Change Canada.
The government says they want these vans to run every 10 minutes between two Gatineau addresses. That's every 10 minutes whether there are people in them or not. Back and forth, back and forth, back and forth all day long - for 251 days per year.
Sign our petition and tell Catherine McKenna to stop to her carbon-intensive shuttle bus program and lead the way by asking her employees to ride their bikes, walk or take the bus to and from their offices.
