Islanders are invited to contribute to the federal government’s current climate change consultations, beginning with a meeting Wednesday night.

A planning group led by the Environmental Coalition of P.E.I. (ECO-P.E.I.) has been working with P.E.I. members of Parliament to plan riding-level consultations on the topic.

The first consultation will be hosted by Malpeque MP Wayne Easter and ECO-P.E.I. on Wednesday, July 13, from 7-9 p.m. at the Hunter River Community Centre. The event starts with a meet and greet starting at 6:30 p.m.

Individuals and organizations with practical, specific ideas and information to contribute to the national strategy are invited to make presentations of up to five minutes at the consultation.  All are welcome and encouraged to come whether or not they wish to make a presentation. Those who wish to present are asked to contact Robin Moore at

Proceedings will be recorded and fed into the federal information-gathering process.  For more information, visit


Also on the topic of climate change, the provincial government is inviting Islanders to provide input on a climate change mitigation strategy for P.E.I.

An introduction to the topic is now available online with questions to be considered when providing feedback. This strategy will tie in aspects of the energy strategy but will be a broader consideration of various aspects of climate change.

Online consultation will run throughout July with a draft strategy being released for public review and input later this summer.
