As the new year commences, so does the momentum of the David Suzuki Foundation’s Blue Dot Tour! Last fall, the Blue Dot Tour saw Dr. Suzuki and other notable Canadians crossing the country to introduce Canadians to the simple but powerful concept of a right to a healthy environment. Although over 110 countries have a constitutional right to clean air, water and soil, Canada does not. The time to change this is now, and the place to start is here – in our very own communities. Jennifer Rodriguez, the host of the event, will provide a background on the right to a healthy environment, explain what adopting the declaration means for municipalities, share examples on how some municipalities are already implementing the declaration, and most importantly, provide the next steps on how attendees can take action now.
