In the recent speech from the throne, there was not a word about climate change. No mention by our national government about this threat to our ability to live on this beautiful planet. The only words in support of our environment and future generations came from Senate page Michelle DePape who held up the sign reading Stop Harper.
Congratulations to this courageous young woman who risked her position as a page, as well as criticism from those afraid of change. Michelle stands with Agnes McPhail, Greenpeace and other Canadians who refused to be silent about social and ecological injustice. She spoke truth to power. She set a fine example. She spoke for me.
