An Invite to All from the Niagara District Council of Women
Posted August 26th, 2019 on Niagara At Large
The Niagara District Council of Women will be hosting a free Public Forum, “The Climate Change Crisis – We all Have a Role to Play” on Wednesday, September 11 at 8:00 pm in the Mills Room at the St. Catharines Central Library (54 Church Street).
Our guest speaker will be Mr. Ed Smith, a clarion voice in the rapidly growing public awareness of threats to Niagara’s natural world from global warming and climate change.
Recently appointed as the City of St. Catharines representative on the Niagara Peninsula Conservation Authority (NPCA) Board of Directors, Mr. Smith has spoken strongly over the past several years about NPCA’s pro-development decisions which have put Niagara’s environment at risk.
Now, with the public’s strong awareness and desire for change, he is urging NPCA to take a leadership role. As he said recently, “We are very aware of the ecological crisis and the damages global warming will bring if we don’t act immediately.
Now is the time to put Niagara’s environmental protection on the top of everyone’s agenda!”
The Niagara District Council of Women (NDCW) has 24 federated group members plus individual members from across the Region. This year we celebrate our 101st year of service to the community.
