Students will gather at Oak Bay-Gordon Head MLA Andrew Weaver’s constituency office Wednesday as part of a provincial day of action for high school students on climate change.
High school students all across B.C. will be meeting with their MLAs to discuss how the government plans to address the proposed export of coal through Fraser Surrey Docks and other facilities in B.C. The day of action, titled Defend our Future, is a youth-led initiative aiming to draw attention to the threat that rising coal exports pose to B.C.’s environment and economy.
“We are reaching a pivotal point in which our generation has to step up and do something about climate change. We [the youth] are calling on our elected decision makers to think about the consequences that their decisions will have on our future” said Sky Losier of Defend Our Future.
