Barrie City Hall Rally One of Many Across The Globe

Local Youth Add Their Voice To Global Cry For Action on Climate Change

A gathering at Barrie City hall began at noon Friday, marking only one of the countless rallies across the globe fighting against climate change.

Those participating in the Barrie event were expected to gather at City Hall before marching to the MacLaren Art Centre for speakers, artists, and musicians, all meant to be a show of solidarity and to raise awareness of the effects of climate change.

This is a non-partisan event being led by students, individuals and local ­grassroots organizations.
