Vernon  

10 year-old climate change activist

Ten year old student Neave Allen spoke to Vernon City Council Thursday regarding climate change.

She urged Council to make emissions reduction a priority, to stop development outside the core of the city, to provide bicycle sharing programs, provide better transit, forbid all idling, pass green building regulations and encourage green roofs and solar panels.

Council was requested to consider the environment when making decisions and to lobby the Provincial and Federal Governments for further action dealing with climate change.
