VICTORIA : Ahead of Earth Day, BC Liberal MLA for West Vancouver-Capilano Karin Kirkpatrick spoke about the need to leverage green technologies to fight climate change, and called on everyone to take small actions to tackle this global problem, such as taking part in the Mayor’s Community Cleanup Challenge this week to help clean up West Vancouver.

Kirkpatrick also recognized community groups For Our Kids, a North Shore network of parents and grandparents advocating for a cleaner future for the next generation, and the West Vancouver Streamkeeper Society, a non-profit working to protect and sustain wild Pacific salmon stocks.
