Climate activists protest outside MP’s office
Linnea Granberg and Asha Dunn say they’re fighting for the future of the planet.
The Grade 11 students joined a group of 30 activists on Friday afternoon at a climate-change rally in front of Liberal MP Patty Hajdu’s Red River Road office, calling on all levels of government to take environmental issues seriously before it’s too late.
“We don’t have this planet for that long. If we keep continuing on the path that we’re on, we’re going to destroy the environment and people my age and people younger than me won’t have an actual future on this planet. That’s why it’s important,” said Granberg, a 17-year-old student at Superior Collegiate and Vocational Institute.
Classmate Asha Dunn said it needs to be dealt with now, something too many politicians seem to be willing to put on the back burner – if they even believe in the science to begin with. – Tbnewswatch

With Canada and its warmongering Foreign Minister supporting an illegal coup in Venezuela, risking a war with Russia, and supporting the expansion of NATO right up to the Russian border, risking a war with Russia, I would think that today’s young people might be protesting against an extinction-level nuclear war instead of some vague threat such as climate change.
War between nuclear powers has never been closer since the Cuban missile crisis back in the 1960s. Trump is pushing for a fight with anyone who does not kneel before the mighty US. He is imposing financial and economic sanctions on so many countries, he has probably lost track himself, all the while hoping such hardships will provoke a response that will give his military the green-light to launch an attack.
This behaviour that the US and its boot-licking lackeys such as Canada need to be stopped. The only way is for the public to rise up and publicly protest.
The threat produced by climate change is not immediate. Won’t happen this year. Not next year. Maybe never. Nobody knows for sure. The time frame keeps changing.
The threat produced by nuclear war is high today. It will be high tomorrow. The same next week.
Young people are protesting against the wrong threat. They should protesting in front of Foreign Affairs Minister Crystia Freeland’s office. In front of Minister of Workforce, Employment and Labour Patty Hajdu’s office. Hounding Trudeau everywhere he goes. THAT is what our young people need to be doing. Protesting against war.
