On Tuesday, November 7, Bishop John Stephens returned for the day from the Loon Lake Clergy Retreat to speak at the BC Climate Emergency Campaign Report Card event.

The two year old BC Climate Emergency Campaign is an alliance of civil groups of which the Diocese of New Westminster is a member.

Here is a link to Isaac Phan Nay's November 8 report "B.C. is not on track to meet climate goals: civil society groups" on the Canadian Observer's website.

In the article Bishop John is quoted saying:

“We are in a climate emergency and we need to act as if we are in a climate emergency... This is the time to act. This is not the time to hesitate."
