One hundred and sixty-nine events are currently scheduled to take place across Canada as part of the massive Global Climate Strike movement happening on Friday, Sept. 27, according to environmentalist organizer website Fridays For Future Canada (FFFC). FFFC says there are currently 6,253 events schedules in 3,150 towns and cities around the world taking part in the Global Climate Strike day.
The events, which are happening across all 10 Canadian provinces as well as the Yukon and Northwest Territories, include a vast array of climate crisis protests, from meet-ups in front of Lethbridge, Alberta's town hall to gatherings at Victoria Park in Halifax, Nova Scotia and a meeting at the parliament building in Victoria, British Columbia.
According to the Global Climate Strike website, "Young people have woken up much of the world with their powerful Fridays for Future school strikes for the climate. As we deal with devastating climate breakdown and hurtle towards dangerous tipping points, young people are calling on millions of us across the planet to disrupt business as usual by joining the global climate strikes on September 20, just ahead of a UN emergency climate summit, and again on September 27. Together, we will sound the alarm and show our politicians that business, as usual, is no longer an option. The climate crisis won’t wait, so neither will we."
