Letter: Time to work together on climate issues

Although we may not know each other, we may share a common concern around our climate dilemma

Open letter to BC residents:

Although we may not know each other, we may share a common concern around our current climate dilemma. People in my part of BC worry that, collectively, our elected representatives, both provincially and nationally, are letting politics get in the way of effectively dealing with what is really a global climate problem.

Assuming you are concerned about the future of B.C. and our planet, one easy first step would be to write your MLA and MP to let them know your concern.

Also, that this could be a time for all levels of government to work together in dealing with this collective problem. Get to know your elected representatives and happy writing. Your silence gives permission for nothing to change.
