Like several other municipalities across the country, Windsor City Council’s meetings were cancelled for weeks during COVID-19. But council is now sitting again and there are important COVID-19 and non-COVID-19 matters on the agenda.
On Monday 4 May Windsor City Council will consider the plan from city administration on accelerating climate mitigation measures. This is the plan to implement the climate emergency declaration passed by Windsor City Council on 19 November 2019, as almost 500 municipalities across Canada have done.
Through the Cities and Climate Action Forum, Windsor Law students have supported this process all along the way, from supporting the drafting of the emergency declaration, to providing supporting research, to appearing as delegates before standing committee and city council. Since there will be no delegates at today’s Windsor City Council virtual meeting, they submitted written support for the plan to council.
Join Cities and Climate Action Monday, 4 May from 1 pm via Zoom. We’ll watch the council meeting together and have a chance to chat about it as this important discussion moves forward.
