Letters: Calling for Climate Justice No. 2

People were asking for meaningful action and government leadership on climate change.

DEAR EDITOR:

 

In a Canadian Press article, May 11th, it was noted that a large gathering in Quebec City was held ahead of the of the Climate Summit to be held there. People were asking for meaningful action and government leadership on climate change. B.C.’s Christie Clarke will not be attending due to a talk she will be giving about the success of B.C.’s carbon tax. The talk is not at the same time as the Climate Summit. Jim Prentice will not be at the Climate Summit as he is too busy trying to get his party re-elected. Regardless of what they say, it’s their doing that tells the story.

If not willing or able to do the job, they should stand aside for those who will.

The way you vote could be the difference between having to pick up the pieces or acting on a cohesive plan to keep the pieces together. What will you do?
