Your intrepid reporter missed an event in Cobourg today but I received a report from Warren McCarthy. We all heard about the Swedish school girl Greta Thunberg eloquently addressing the United Nations asking us not to ruin the planet for the next generation. School children then staged nationwide strikes with a particularly large crowd in Montreal. Cobourg students were not to be left out as you can see in the photos. The demonstration was in front of Cobourg’s Town Hall at around noon.
So in lieu of my report, here is what Warren sent me.
“I think 130-140 people, several speakers including the young girl with the floral headband.
“Blue Dot & Sustainable Cobourg were visible.
“Green Party & Kim Rudd there – may have been others.
“I saw Suzanne Séguin, Adam Bureau and Nicole Beatty – may have been others.”
Photos are all from Warren. Thanks.
