In October, MacGregor urged climate change action in the House of Commons, stating:

“We can rise to meet this challenge, and create a better world with a new clean-energy economy. We just need a government with the will to make it happen.”

The event runs March 13 from 6 to 8 p.m. in the upstairs learning commons at 3041 Langford Lake Rd. A livestream will also be made available on Facebook.
