The local Red Deer Chapter of the Council of Canadians will be marching in solidarity with striking students locally and world-wide on Friday, to bring awareness about climate change and its devastating effects on the globe.
“The Council of Canadians has always advocated for environmental justice and we are encouraged to see so many young people take the banner and go forward, bringing awareness and demanding change,” said Chris D’Lima, chair of the Red Deer Chapter.
“Our local chapter is passionate about climate change and transitioning from fossil fuels to green energy. We’ve organized and hosted a number of presentations in Red Deer over the past year about this, and plan to hold another event this upcoming November. We will have more information out later this month about our November event,” said D’Lima.
The Chapter members and others interested in climate change will gather this Friday, at 2:00 pm in front of City Hall (west).
