Next climate strike set for Friday at Perth site of PSFDH
The next local Strike for Climate takes place this Friday in Perth.
Local environmentalist and past Green Party of Canada candidate Anita Payne tells Lake 88 it will take place at the Great War Memorial Hospital to draw attention to the effect of climate change on health. It goes from 11:00 am to 1 pm, and organizers expect some students to attend on their lunch break.
Payne says in our area, Lyme Disease is a great concern, and currently the hospital emergency wards are dealing with many injuries from people falling on ice. She says we are experiencing more icy conditions in winter because of the roller coaster weather resulting from the warming of the Arctic.
Payne also says anyone who would like to attend is welcome to and adds that the students in attendance will be the spokespeople for the event.
A similar event took place last month at Perth Town Hall (Pictured, courtesy Facebook).
