NORTH BAY’S CALL FOR ACTION ON CLIMATE CRISIS: STOP ENERGY EAST

North Bay joined more than 2,800 communities around the world calling for action on the climate crisis in events held over the weekend of September 20-21. The global call to action coincided with the People’s Climate March in New York City on September 21, with over 400,000 filling the streets just before a United Nations Climate Summit (675,000 worldwide over the weekend). Participants in the North Bay events began with a rally on Lake Nipissing, then moved by bus, bicycles and walking to a rally at Armstrong Beach, on Trout Lake. The North Bay events highlighted the risks TransCanada’s Energy East project pose not just for watersheds but for the global climate. See media coverage by  CTV  and the  North Bay Nugget
