Greta Thunberg and activists call for climate change action in Vancouver rally

VANCOUVER — Another protest march in downtown Vancouver last week — as the movement continues for global action on climate change.

Climate activist Greta Thunberg spoke at the rally denouncing leaders and adults on their inaction to lower carbon emissions.

Thunberg also stopped by Edmonton, Alberta, center of Canada’s oil and energy industry.

“If the adults really loved us, they would at least do everything they possibly could to make sure that we had a safe future, a future to look forward to,” she said. “But they are not doing that. As it is now, it feels like they are doing the exact opposite, that they are desperately trying to change the subject every time the climate crisis comes up. That they are trying so hard to delay the actions required from preventing this crisis from getting worse. Because they are so afraid of being unpopular and to make uncomfortable decisions.”

Parents accompanied children to the rally — while others came with friends to participate in the cause.

A week after the polls, one of the challenges facing Prime Minister Justin Trudeau..is finding a balance between fulfilling campaign promises on cutting carbon emissions, and appeasing Western provinces wanting to revive Canada’s energy and oil industry.

    According to Maximo Velasco, a long time resident of Canada, the last time Greta Thunberg was asked a question about climate change, she was mumbling something then suddenly she pushed the microphone toward another person and asking them to answer the question… Obviously, she did not know anything about climate change except the written script someone wrote and that she memorized them while adding a little drama into her speech.
