Participants then proceed to 1900 Davenport for a 7 pm meeting with speakers Angela Bischoff of the Ontario Clean Air Alliance, Kyra Bell-Pasht, Canadian Environmental Law Association counsel, Heather Marshall of TEA and more.

Saturday (November 17), 10 am to 5 pm. $5 sugg. U of T Sidney Smith Hall, 100 St. George. t.grupoapoyo.org.
