On May 20th the City of Ottawa Council’s Environment Committee met to consider a new climate change management plan. This discussion was open to the public and many local groups and community members (and perhaps you!) attended. David Rhynas spoke on on behalf of 350 Ottawa and urged the city to consider divesting from fossil fuels. Great work! Please see the links below for more on this.
