A changing climate means that certain things that I enjoy about life in Thunder Bay will be seriously altered. Our quality of life is vulnerable, and that makes climate change an urgent issue. Increasing periods of drought and frequency of extreme heat events may leave our forests and grasslands dry and fire prone. Thunder Bay and area has already experienced periods of fire bans and burn permit suspensions. Without action for climate change mitigation, our campfires and backyard fire pits may become a thing of the past.
The creation of strong neighbourhoods is key to building resilience as a community. Developing neighbourhood hubs provides opportunities for neighbours to join together, learn about each other and to support each when faced with challenge. Strong neighbourhoods grow from simple actions – waving, saying hello, walking together, or sharing resources. It gives me hope to see these things happening in Thunder Bay neighbourhoods. In the face of challenges brought on by climate change, our community needs neighbours who support each other through emergencies and recovery.
