Posted on Wednesday, April 06, 2022 06:01 AM

I am now 62 and grew up listening to David Suzuki warn us about global warming and the need to act forty years ago.  I watched as B.C.’s forests were clear cut, as subdivisions were built on ancient flood plains, as SUV’s and trucks became the norm for city dwellers to own, and how each family went from one to many vehicles.  Travel ads screamed for us to escape our life and travel, travel, travel.  Appliances went from being built to last decades to the new ones that are only warrantied...
