April 16 Climate Vote at City Hall

Councillor Shawn Menard plans to bring a motion at Environment Committee on April 16 that would declare a climate emergency in a similar way to Gatineau, Kingston and numerous other cities.

I join Ecology Ottawa in urging citizens to tell their city councillors and the mayor that they support such a declaration.

For more info see Ecology Ottawa’s web page where there’s also info on a rally at city hall on the morning of the vote. I plan to be there.
