WATCH: Hundreds of students protest climate change in Courtenay

More than 300 students across the Comox Valley gathered in front of Courtenay City Hall Friday afternoon to ensure their voices were heard concerning climate change.

The students took part in the Comox Valley Climate March, and students made their way to various banks along the route to eventually stop in front of the shared NDP office of Courtenay-Comox MLA Ronna-Rae Leonard and Courtenay-Alberni MP Gord Johns.
