Actress and activist Jane Fonda took part in the Jobs, Justice and the Climate March in Toronto on Sunday.

Fonda joined thousands of protesters who were calling on Ontario’s government to do more to fight climate change.

“I think that the coalition that is represented in today’s march and rally … will make a difference,” Fonda told reporters. “They are saying, ‘We don’t have to choose between the environment and the economy — that is a false choice.”

Fonda was joined by environmental activist David Suzuki and author and activist Naomi Klein as well as her 16-year-old grandson Malcolm Vadim.

“We can’t leave it all on the shoulders of young people,” Fonda said. “When I come to the end of my life, I don’t want my grandkids to ask why I didn’t do more to help clean up what my generation did.”

Klein told the Toronto Sun: “The truth is if we take climate change seriously we can have a better economy, more jobs, more equality. That’s what this march is about.”

There was an eventual march, which Fonda did not participate in. Rather she attended the rally,and snapped photos of the crowd with her phone. Speakers included union leaders and students.

“I wanted to be a part of this rally because it’s historic to have large unions represented here,” she said. “Unions that represent oil and gas workers.” She went onto say, “I’m here because I think that the coalition that is represented in today’s march and rally, and not just today but ongoing in Canada — First Nations, labour unions, working people, students — this is the kind of coalition that will make the difference.”

Just last month, Fonda took part in a Greenpeace rally in Vancouver along with Rachel McAdams.

Vegandale Brewery offers the ultimate vegan night out

This brewpub helps veganism shed its stay-home-and-eat-tofu stereotype.

Don’t blame vegans for the shame you feel about using animals

The shame Carly Lewis claims veganism casts over her is more likely the ghosts of moral uncertainty, spectres that are more likely fish than cows, wondering how morality can possibly be used as ammunition in favour of murder.
