Citizens will gather at MP Richard Cannings' constituency office at 301 Main Street. The goal is to demand climate emergency action as part of cross-Canada mobilization.

"In response to the wildfires, extreme heat, and other urgent climate impacts across Canada and around the globe this summer. South Okanagan-West Kootenay residents will rally at Nanaimo Square in Penticton to demand the federal government place a moratorium on new fossil fuel expansion and enact a sweeping transition," reads a news release from Richard Cannings' office.
