Concern about the climate crisis brought just under 200 residents of Muskoka and Parry Sound together to learn more about it at an event called “Climate Change in Muskoka and Parry Sound – what to expect and what we can do about it” in Huntsville at the Active Living Centre last Saturday. The event was organized and sponsored by the local Constituency Association of the Green Party of Ontario

Keynote speaker Dr. Peter Sale, painted a picture of Muskoka's future. He said we have already lost three weeks a year of ice coverage on our lakes. “If you like maple syrup eat it now”, Sale said. In winter we will only have one month of consistently sub-zero temperatures instead of three, while in summer we will suffer through longer heat waves, he said.
