An Invite from Niagara Centre MP Vance Badawey, Federal MP for Niagara Centre, and Niagara College
Posted January 5th, 2017 on Niagara At Large
In keeping with the Canadian government’s continued efforts to consult with the public on its plans to address climate change, Niagara Centre MP Vance Badawey and Niagara College are hosting a public forum on “action planning” at Niagara College’s Welland Campus on Thursday, January 26th, 2017 from 5 to 8 p.m.
An earlier session, hosted by Badawey and the College at its Niagara-on-the-Lake campus this past November 9th, a number of areas or themes were identified, including transit, food systems, land use (i.e. brownfield development and urban intensification) natural heritage protection and enhancement, water resource management, energy production and management, and others.
At the coming January 26th session, members of the public are being asked to help develop plans of action for these areas that the Niagara Centre MP can share with Canada’s Environment Minister Catherine McKenna for her consideration.
We hope to see as many Niagara residents as can attend there for this session on how we as communities and a country address one of the most challenging environmental threats of our time.
