One of the organizers of the local climate action events Sunday says the need for a real breakthrough in Paris is being called for at every level of community.
Jayme Jones was one of 200 people in Castlegar in addition to hundreds more in Nelson and Rossland.
She says in some cases local governments have had to lead on the climate change front and now it’s time for world leaders to lead.
Local marches and events were part of a global show of solidarity ahead of the Paris Climate Conference.
Jones says the variety of attendees – from young to old – and across all walks of life highlight just why the climate has become everyone’s issue.
