Incredibly Proud of These Kids - Feb 14th, 2017

Dear CarbonFreeTO supporters,

We’re incredibly proud of these grade 3 students from Thorncliffe Park Public School who composed very thoughtful messages to the Mayor urging climate action.  They expressed their thoughts in letters aimed directly at the heart of the Mayor and their Councillor Jon Burnside. Then they brought their beautiful cards down to Mayor Tory's office at city hall.

VALENTINES TEA FOR THE MAYOR: PUT CLIMATE IN THE BUDGET!
