March Climate Action! … Indoors! 
What better way to beat the cold weather, social distancing, and ‘stuck-at-home’ blues than by writing and signing well thought impactful letters and petitions for a safer planet! 

Alpine Helicopters will be presenting to the Canmore Council regarding their lease renewal, March 17, 1:00 pm, at the Canmore Civic Centre. Some important things to request our council to consider: How many GHGs per year does Alpine Helicopters emit due to tourism flights versus search and rescue?How many GHGs will their lease renewal allow them to release?How does this incorporate our Climate Emergency Declaration?
