This Coming Monday, Vote to Conserve Our Natural Heritage. Vote for Saving Waverly Woods

A Message from Marcie Jacklin and Community Voices of Fort Erie

Posted September 16th, 2021 on Niagara At Large

Fort Erie, Ontario – Next Monday, September 20th, Canadians will go to the polls to cast their votes for the federal candidate of their choice.  This is our democratic right, and also, our responsibility.

There is no doubt that we are currently facing a climate emergency.

We need only to look at the record high temperatures, wildfires and flooding that have occurred over the past year to see that action must be taken now.

We also need to conserve our natural resources, like Waverly Woods, to ensure a healthy environment for everyone.

We must make sure that the government we elect will address these important issues and move quickly to implement mitigation measures.
