  • Nov. 28, 2015 11:00 a.m.

To send a message to leaders at the United Nations climate change summit in Paris happening over the next two weeks, the terrace chapter of the Council of Canadians is organizing both a group march and rally, as well as a film screening.

The Terrace to Paris rally and march to city hall starts tomorrow, Sun. Nov. 29, at 1 p.m. at George Little Park and goes until 2 p.m.

Then there is a film screening of the recently released film This Changes Everything based on the book by Naomi Klein happening from 2:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. at the UNBC campus, Room 103, at 4837 Keith Ave.

Local glacier expert Dr. Matt Beedle (Dr. Ice), recently featured on the National discussing glaciers, and climate change in Northwest BC, will give a keynote speech before the reading.

The rally and march is billed as one that is “non-partisan and peaceful. Take part in global action to send a message to leaders in Paris that we want action on climate change. Dress for the weather and bring a sign if possible.”
