HalifActivists on Earth Day 

“Instead of meaningful action, such as voting for politicians that make the environment a priority, we end up with short-term action that doesn’t really make the lasting impact we want.”
---Satya Ramen, veteran eco-activist

“We need Earth Days. To sell something you must tell it and tell it again. Even if we only give lip service to one day a year it’s better than none at all."
---Walter Regan, President, Sackville Rivers Association

“I would worry if awareness was contained to one day per year, but it isn’t. It’s still useful to have events like Earth Day"
---Howard Epstein, MLA Halifax Chebucto

"Earth Day is not a complete waste of time. It does create a brief moment in people’s increasingly busy lives where the environment takes centre stage and there is benefit in that.” 
---Chris Miller, wilderness & conservation coordinator, CPAWS

"So far I have not seen any value to Earth Day; I’m not a big fan of these things. I don’t see any real change from 1970; Earth Day has become a franchise."
---Richard Zurawski, meteorologist and author
