Burlington Green has partnered with the David Suzuki Foundation to bring Dr. Suzuki to town for three separate events at the Burlington Performing Arts Centre Nov. 21.
The events will focus on the Blue Dot movement which promotes the principle that all Canadians deserve to breathe fresh air, drink clean water, eat safe food and enjoy a stable climate. In 2015, Burlington City Council passed a motion committing the city to the Blue Dot Declaration. An update will be provided in the evening session on the city’s progress toward that goal. To date, 94 municipalities have signed on to the Blue Dot Declaration.
Events Nov. 21, BPAC:
9 am to 3 pm: Youth Eco-Summit for Halton Students in Grades 7-12.
5 pm: Private Meet ‘N Greet and Photos Dr. Suzuki.
I was inspired to seek public office because I believe, like so many of you, “I can do something about that” on the issues we face. As councilor, my role is to take a stand on what’s best for residents and go to bat for it. Pushback is inevitable from those who don’t have the community’s interests at heart. I will stand with you and for you, to achieve the best interests of our city, without caving to unacceptable compromise in the name of consensus.
