Activist Greta Thunberg in Edmonton Friday for climate strike

Greta to strike at legislature

Swedish activist Greta Thunberg is planning to be at the Alberta legislature Friday for a climate strike.

Climate Justice Edmonton says the 16-year-old Stockholm student will join activists in a march from a downtown Edmonton park to a rally at the legislature.

Thunberg is currently touring North America and took to social media on the weekend to say she will be visiting Alberta in the coming days.

The teen has been making international headlines, meeting with politicians and leading protests demanding governments take action to address climate change.

Alberta Environment Minister Jason Nixon has said that the Alberta government won't seek out a meeting with Thunberg, but hopes she takes time to learn how the province has some of the greenest oil and gas rules in the world.

Alberta NDP Opposition Leader Rachel Notley has urged the government to meet with Thunberg as part of a larger commitment to embrace climate change as a reality and to do something about it.
