Some of Edmonton’s brightest have put their heads together on the topic of climate change.
Edmonton-Centre MP Randy Boissonnault hosted a climate change open house, Wednesday night, to discuss what steps the federal government can be taking on the issue.
Boissonnault says no one came out to challenge climate change.
“In fact we had people who were very knowledgeable about the subject, and in some cases people who spent their whole careers studying the matter and working on the matter.”
Boissonnault says around 100 people turned out to the event, including MLA David Shepherd, and there were several good ideas thrown around.
“I know how smart people in this riding are, because I met them over two years at their doors,” he says. “You know, tonight, to have a hundred people at the MacEwan Centre, talking climate change, this is the kind of thing I dreamed about when I ran for two years to be a member of parliament.”
Boissonnault adds we all need to work together to find solutions, and he thinks it’s important for all oders of government – First Nations, municipal, provincial, and federal – to all be working together on fighting climate change.
“Nobody has a monopoly on saving the planet,” he says. “We all have to work together.” (scb)
