|As the response to youth climate strikes and recent polling demonstrates, Canadians are ready for their government to move past platitudes and accept responsibility for the emissions-induced climate crisis.
On Friday, October 4, residents of the Courtenay-Alberni riding have an opportunity to hear where their candidates stand on the issue at an all-candidates forum titled ‘Canada and the Climate Crisis.’
Mass adoption of electric transportation. Dramatic reductions in CO2. Stabilizing a rapidly changing environment. A Green New Deal for Canada’s displaced energy workers. Our safety. These are central issues requiring a transition in society that the world hasn’t faced since World War II.
But so far, no government in Canada has been willing to act at a scale commensurate with the problem.
An unprecedented coalition of Comox Valley youth, First Nations, faith-based and conservation-minded groups have come together to test our next MP’s vision on climate change.
Join the conversation at 6:30 p.m. on Friday, October 4, at the Florence Filberg Centre in Courtenay. If you wish to attend indicate you are going on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/
When: October 4, from 6:30-8:00 p.m.
Presented by a partnership of the following organizations:
Comox Valley Conservation Partnership

Shelter Point Distillery in Oyster River, Wayward Distillery in Courtenay and Ampersand Distilling and Stillhead Distillery in the Cowichan Valley are among those across the country that produced tens of thousands of litres of hand sanitizer during the first wave of the pandemic despite having to close their doors to the public and losing their source of income.
