A packed house at the LNG/Fracking Forum yesterday evening in Comox Valley.
Shout out to Jim Elliott for speaking to the Moose Jaw Nature Society on the Saskatchewan Climate Change Petition.
Council chapters are made up of volunteers who work with local community groups, organized labour and others to promote the Council’s campaigns to protect water and public health care, work for fair trade, climate justice and democracy as well as other issues of social and economic concern. Check out some of our chapters’ recent actions below and be in touch if you are interested in getting involved in a chapter near you.
