Exhilarated and exhausted, we arrived home in the wee hours of this morning from the New York City People’s Climate March.
What a day it was! 400,000 people, united in a beautiful, boisterous
call for a better future. We joined the 300-strong Toronto350 contingent in the “Stop Tar Sands” section.
There were a lot of Canadians there, including our hardest-working Parliamentarian, Elizabeth May.
There were kids and grandparents, students and teachers, unionists, immigrants, greenies, socialists, indigenous people, religious folks of all denominations, scientists, nurses, human rights groups, politicians, celebrities, … finally, a real cross-section of society, peacefully but powerfully lining up against our greatest threat. It was thrilling to be part of it!
