Tamara Lorincz, the executive director of the Nova Scotia Environmental Network, and Andrea Harden-Donahue, energy campaigner with the Council of Canadians, write in today's Halifax Chronicle Herald that green collar jobs are vital to a sustainable Nova Scotia economy.
They write in their op-ed that, "In the (provincial) consultations, Back to Balance, one of the four questions that the government has asked is: What investments should be made today that will help grow the economy in the long term? We believe a green-collar job strategy is a critical investment to stimulate the economy, reduce poverty and protect the environment."

If you live near Halifax, there is also a free public event on this subject tonight from 7:30-9 p.m. in Room 104, at Dalhousie Law School, 6061 University Ave.
Andrea will be giving the keynote address at tonight's event, which has been organized by the Nova Scotia Environmental Network and the Council of Canadians.
