I wanted to introduce my readers to a really great grass roots initiative taking place in Richmond Hill. Neighbours for the planet is a new group that has formed to further discussion and action at a grass roots neighbourhood level.
This group is made up of neighbours living in our community and they have quickly taken a leadership role in advancing issues related to Climate Change in Richmond Hill. It is clear that residents are concerned about climate change and are willing to take action even though our elected officials are sometimes not as bold. If you are interested in this issue I would encourage you to reach out to this group.
