"The creation of a Niagara Climate Change Action Network reinforces Niagara Region’s commitment to make changes and investments necessary to combat the effects of climate change before it’s too late. The network will be critical to paving a strategic path forward that will result in initiatives that can only be revealed when organizations work together to achieve a common goal. I’m proud of the work that was accomplished yesterday and am confident that this new network will yield positive results for future generations."
