Open letter to Vaudreuil-Soulanges residents

So you marched in Friday’s historic climate strike, now what steps will you take? Sadly statistics show that after attending a protest, people often become less engaged in an issue. Here are some things you can do right here in our community in the next few weeks to continue to express your voice and take action. Don’t miss the French language debate ‘L’environnemnt, parlons-on’ that will take place with the candidates for Vaudreuil-Soulanges on Thursday October 3 at 7 p.m. at the Centre Multisports in Vaudreuil-Dorion. All the party’s candidates will be there except Conservative candidate Karen Cox who recently withdrew her presence, and People’s Party of Canada candidate Kaylin Tam who did not respond to the invitation. A talk on climate change will be given by scientist Dr. Heather Short (Saint-Lazare Community Centre on Thursday, October 17 at 7 p.m). I attended Dr. Short’s talk in Hudson. The talk is easy to understand and what I learned completely changed my perspective on what needs to be done. Particularly inspiring are the round table discussions afterwards where we, as attendees, share our ideas about what we can do. Consider attending this upcoming talk in Saint-Lazare. And finally, read each party’s environmental platform and use your vote on October 21 to express your dissatisfaction with the decisions made by our current leaders. Debbie Reynolds
