Saturday, March 18th from 2-4pm
Join Citizen's Soapbox at St. Philip's Parish House in Garrison.
The group will be dedicating a good portion of the meeting to discussing carbon pricing, which was voted as the most urgent and important issue to bring to our federal representatives to move our country in a positive direction.
Take a look at this draft memo outlining a recent Carbon Dividends proposal and read this Statement of Support. We hope to discuss the merits of this approach as a group and develop a strategy for future action.
