May 14 2024. The room was full with eloquent and respectful speakers who presented their submissions to Council's Planning and Consultation Committee Meeting. The focus was the Biodiversity Strategy. 

All submissions were a powerful demonstration of the knowledge held within our community, and the deep awareness of biodiversity, its ongoing decline, and urgent need for attention.
As noted by Mayor Ramcharan, there was not a single person in the room who spoke against the adoption of a strong Biodiversity Strategy.
