‘You can make a difference:’ Sault Climate Hub invites public to ‘raise the alarm’ on climate change

Group urges people to join the movement on Thursday, July 29 at 5 p.m.

The Sault Climate Hub is urging Saultities to join the fight against what they’re calling a climate emergency, the group says in a news release issued today. 

The group invites the public to “join like-minded Canadians across the country” on Thursday, July 29 at 5 p.m., wherever you are, and “make yourself heard (ensuring you follow Ontario’s mandated stage three public health protocols),” the press release says. 

“Make a sign, and take five minutes for our children, for future generations, to demand that all levels of government take immediate action, commensurate with the accelerating climate emergency.”

The full release is below:

The climate emergency has revealed its unrelenting nature time and again this summer, in the form of record-shattering heatwaves, wild fires (and poor air quality), and historic floods, resulting tragically in deaths and environmental refugees. 

Please join like-minded Canadians across the country on Thursday, July 29 at 5 p.m., wherever you are, and make yourself heard (ensuring you follow Ontario’s mandated stage three public health protocols).  Make a sign, and take five minutes for our children, for future generations, to demand that all levels of government take immediate action, commensurate with the accelerating climate emergency.

You can make a difference.  You can demand just action.  All you have to do is something, anything, adding your voice to the growing movement raising the alarm about the climate emergency.

Please take a picture, and post it on social media platforms, to amplify your efforts, and start meaningful conversation with friends and family.
