Bravo to Cumberland council; hopefully others follow suit

Dear editor,

An open letter to the Cumberland village council:                                                            I am writing to offer my congratulations and thanks for your Declaration of the Right to a Healthy Environment.

Your declaration enshrining citizens rights to clean air, water and safe food in an official document is truly an occasion to celebrate.

It is my hope that your wonderful example will spread beyond Cumberland to the other municipalities and regional districts of the Comox Valley.

Thank you for your efforts.



Wendy Prothero
