Central Saanich resident Alexis White will be proposing a resolution to council Monday (Feb. 16) for the right to live in a healthy environment.

Based on David Suzuki’s Blue Dot Tour, the proposal states all people have the right to live in a healthy environment, including the right to breathe clean air, drink clean water, consume safe food, access nature, know about pollutants and contaminants released into local environment and participate in decision-making that will affect the environment.

White says she will expand on the proposal, including the District’s responsibilities and roles in supporting a healthy environment and encourages people to attend and support it.

The meeting is Monday, Feb. 16 at 7 p.m. at the Central Saanich council chambers, 1903 Mount Newton Cross Road.
