Climate Action Rally on Saturday

350 Climate Action Rally

Saturday marks the Global Day of Action on Climate Change. Organizers have planned a rally at the Manitoba Legislature at 1:30 p.m., which will include a speech by climate expert Dr. Danny Blair, music, and hopefully an audio link to Ottawa’s similar event called “Fill the Hill.” The group will then walk to the site of the future Canadian Museum for Human Rights at The Forks for a photo op.

The rally is organized by the website, which stands for the number scientists say is the safe upper limit for carbon dioxide in the atmosphere.

The group says their message to Ottawa is simple: Canada must negotiate seriously and constructively in Copenhagen.
