Two Quinte area environmental groups are looking for answers on the federal government’s proposal to buy out the Kinder Morgan pipeline project in western Canada.
Organizer Lori Borthwick tells Quinte News the two organizations, Lead Now and 350-DOT-ORG, have reached out to Bay of Quinte MP Neil Ellis, Hastings, Lennox and Addington MP Mike Bossio and Mark Gerretsen MP for Kingston and the Islands to attend a local Town Hall on the issue.
Borthwick says the main concern is the level of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. She says, “Climate change is upon us and a huge threat to life on this planet. I feel it is imperative that we do all we can now to mitigate this immediately.”
The Town Hall meeting will be held next Thursday, at 6:30 p.m., at Loyalist College.
