Climate by Candlelight

On a global day of action established by environmental advocates to mark the beginning of United Nations climate talks in Copenhagen, Toronto activists gathered in Queen’s Park on Saturday evening to hold a candlelight vigil in front of the Ontario Legislature. Between Copenhagen-themed carols and statements on the environment, Jack Layton spoke about the green movement in Canada and his upcoming trip to the talks in Denmark. Layton hopes to get the message across to delegates that Harper’s representatives do not speak for the majority in Parliament.
