Sheila Watt-Cloutier to Address Economic Club of Toronto

    TORONTO, Sept. 24 /CNW/ - In this keynote address to the Economic Club,
Ms. Watt-Cloutier will discuss how the Inuit today face profound challenges to
their environment, their wildlife and their culture. The environment changes,
she shows us, are connected to the cars we drive, the industries we support,
the green house gases we emit, the disposable world we have become and the
policies we create. "These issues are the real politics of climate change."
The Arctic has also drawn attention for its rich resources and its newly
opening shipping routes. To ensure that development across the North is
conducted carefully and with balance, our world must re-connect around our
shared Arctic, our shared atmosphere, our shared humanity. Watt-Cloutier shows
us how. "Changing public opinion to public policy is the route we must now
take, and we must now speak environment, foreign and economic policy in the
same breath."
