Ottawa Transit Riders Talk Transit at the Green New Deal for Canada
On Friday, June 14, Ottawa Transit Riders joined with environmental groups and social justice advocates in the Ottawa launch of the Green New Deal for Canada. An overflow crowd packed into Glebe-St. James United Church to listen to speeches from environmental leaders like Maude Barlow, Avi Lewis, and David Suzuki. It was an inspirational night filled with great discussions about the role that citizens can play in fighting climate change.
Throughout the evening, members of the OTR Board of Directors talked with attendees about public transit and its crucial role in helping to make the planet greener. We heard some great ideas about how to make public transit more affordable, accessible, and sustainable!
