Awaits refreshed action plan to fight climate change at both the ‘community’ and ‘corporate’ levels
March 20, 2013 / Ottawa, ON — Ecology Ottawa’s executive director, Graham Saul, will be speaking as a panelist at the City of Ottawa’s Greenhouse Gas Roundtable scheduled for March 23, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., at Ottawa City Hall.
Mr. Saul is available to speak with the media about this important event and is pleased to provide the community’s perspective on the City’s efforts related to climate change.
“We look forward to participating in the climate change Roundtable,” Mr. Saul said. “It’s time to refresh the City of Ottawa’s plan for doing its fair share to fight climate change and we appreciate the leadership that we are beginning to see from City Hall. The City can’t win this fight on its own, but every level of government has a role to play in confronting the greatest challenge facing humanity today. We’d like to work with the City to have a new plan in place by the end of the year. ”
In advance of the Roundtable, Ecology Ottawa is circulating a two-page backgrounder called “A Guide to Refreshing the City of Ottawa’s 2004 Air Quality and Climate Change Management Plan.” It is also available on-line here: HTTP://WWW.SCRIBD.COM/FULLSCREEN/130501786.
