On April 7, 2015, Hayley Touchburn, a 14-year-old Moncton resident, presented the concept of climate change labels on gas pumps to her city councillors. She concluded her presentation with these words:

"If everyone took care of their own backyards, the world would gradually fix itself. This is my way of taking care of my backyard. I’m asking you to formally endorse West Vancouver’s resolution to commit to a more sustainable future. Thank you."

The West Vancouver resolution that Hayley refers to was passed unanimously on January 26, 2015. It reads "... that all vendors of retail petroleum products in Canada be legislated to provide warning labels on all pump handle...". (source: http://westvancouver.ca/news/council-...)

Citizens and communities across Canada are now standing up to back this resolution. For more information on the project, please visit http://ourhorizon.org where you can download our free presentation and adapt it to create your own pitch to your city or town council.
