We need to take care of what we have: David Suzuki

The environment needs to be prioritized now if anything is to be left for future generations.

David Suzuki speaks on climate change to a packed Maht Mahs Gym on Tuesday

The environment needs to be prioritized now if anything is to be left for future generations, David Suzuki told a packed Maht Mahs Gym on Tuesday night. Suzuki was there as part of his Connecting Coastal Communities tour.

“I’m going to kick the bucket very soon, I’m at the last part of my life but what is or is not done is going to reverberate through the lives of young people like you and even young ones like my grandchildren,” said Suzuki.

“Anybody who cares about what’s going to happen to them has got to go to all-candidates meetings, every candidate running for political office. You’ve got to say ‘what is your position? What are you going to do for my kids and my grandchildren?”
