action on global warming

OTTAWA, Oct. 23 /CNW Telbec/ -

    
    What: Tomorrow, Saturday October 24, tens of thousands of Canadians will
    hold over 250 events across Canada, demanding that our Government take
    strong action on climate change. Over 4000 events are to be held globally
    for the International Day of Action, and Canada is leading the way,
    closing in quickly on the United States for number of events planned.
