Squamish climate leadership team picked

Two positions still open: one for youth, one Squamish Nation

 As part of its plan to curb greenhouse gas emissions, the District has picked a team of local experts to help craft policy to reduce the town’s carbon footprint.

Dora Gunn, municipal sustainability co-ordinator, said while those chosen come from a variety of organizations, they will be advising as individuals and not representing their groups’ interests.
