Bonhomme Carnaval and His Buddy David Suzuki to Hold a Winter Summit on Climate Change
In this winter of extremes, it's appropriate that the David Suzuki Foundation is joining forces with Quebec City's Carnaval to highlight climate change.
From January 28-30, the foundation and the Carnaval will hold a "Winter Summit," featuring a talk on climate change by Suzuki at Laval University, an outdoor hockey match and other activities. The Foundation was also involved in the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver, which, of course, was a one time thing. This partnership, though, may continue, as the Bonhomme Carnaval and the festivities have been around for more than 50 years, and plan on continuing for many more.
It seems a natural pairing, particularly since it's getting harder and harder to predict what winter will bring, even in Quebec. Strange thing, though: I haven't found a word of this trolling through English language media. What a shame!
