[VIDEO] Vancouver’s Green Revolution Comes to Ottawa

Version française

On Wednesday, September 16 an overflow crowd filled Jean Pigott Place at Ottawa’s city hall to hear Deputy Mayor of Vancouver Andrea Reimer talk about how her city is pursuing the goals of being the greenest city in the world and running on 100% renewable energy.

They were not disappointed! There was laughter, there were tears, and there was a thunderous standing ovation.

Here are some highlights followed by the full presentations.↓
