Alberta Liberal Leader David Swann marks Earth Day.
“It has now been 46 years since the first Earth Day. In that time we have seen enormous changes worldwide in environmental consciousness and attitudes. Today, Canada joined 169 other countries in signing the historic Paris Agreement, demonstrating just how far we’ve come since that first Earth Day in 1970.
Albertans, too, have seen significant changes in attitude towards the environment.
Earth Day is about remembering that we all share the same air, the same water and the same fragile ecosystem. We are all in this together and the actions we take now will determine the future of our planet and the future of our children and grandchildren who will inherit it.”
