Peterborough County Climate Emergency

On Wednesday, June 24, representatives from 4RG and PYE presented the motion below to Peterborough County to study the possibility of declaring a climate emergency.

The motion passed with no changes after a long and largely positive discussion.There was only one vote against, because that Councillor wanted an immediate declaration, not a referral to staff.

Be it resolved that County Council:

  1. Receives the presentation from Kate Grierson, Executive Member and Guy Hanchet, Chair, For Our Grandchildren and Malaika Collette, Peterborough Youth Empowerment regarding the Emergency Climate Crisis Declaration.
  2. Refers this matter to the Director, Corporate Projects & Services for a report back to Council.

Council has requested a report by the end of the third quarter.
