Chilliwack/Agassiz/Kent/Hope – Following last Friday’s Climate Strike event at Five Corners Chilliwack, as well as Abbotsford City Hall and the Provincial Legislature in Victoria, another event this Friday will focus on youth.

In Chilliwack alone, some 200 young people and adults were at a Noon rally at the Five Corners Clock.

The Chilliwack and Fraser Cascade School District are allowing students to attend on Friday September 27.

Chilliwack School District posted to their Facebook page: “The Chilliwack School District is committed to sustainability and has a Board Policy that articulates that the District and its staff have a responsibility to foster and reinforce a positive environmental ethic and stewardship. The District encourages students to be socially responsible, contributing citizens. On September 27, 2019, the global climate strike day, parents may excuse their child from class if they choose. These students will be recorded as absent and will be allowed to make up any academic work missed. School will be in session for students and staff as normal on September 27, 2019.”
