Statement: Earth Day 2017

April 22nd marks Earth Day.

We all have a role to play to respect and honour Mother Earth.  We owe it to the Earth we live on, to ourselves and to the next generations.

The smallest action can have the greatest impact.

Put in practice the three R’s: Reduce, re-use and recycle, plant a tree, minimize paper consumption and ensure you turn off the lights when you leave a room.  Those are small gestures that we can do on a daily basis that will have a long lasting impact.

As an organization, we try to become more green and reduce our waste and paper consumption.  We are making gains but there’s always ways to improve.

I would ask that you do one special gesture today in recognition of Earth Day and if there are events organized in your local community highlighting this important day, please take the time to participate.


In solidarity,

Jeannie Baldwin
Regional Executive Vice-President, Atlantic Region
