Climate Conference in Grand Bend

The President of the Grand Bend Rotary Club hopes a climate change conference they hosted on the weekend creates some awareness.

Bruce Shaw thinks the more than 200 people that attended the event were better informed when they left.

Shaw says there was general agreement that climate change is here and is influencing our weather.

But there were conflicting opinions on whether individuals in Canada can do much to change that.

Some felt that given the amount of pollution being created by other countries, like China, nothing done by individuals in Canada would have much impact.

Others felt that any recovery has to start with individuals and even though the impact may be negligible it does set an important example.
