Rally for the Coastal Protection Act

Good day Halifax Armdale,

This month marked the 54th anniversary of Earth Day. This global event brings people together to celebrate our planet and take steps towards preserving it for future generations.

Events such as tree-planting and clean-up initiatives were organized throughout the world to raise awareness about environmental issues and promote sustainable practices.

Together, let's work to promote environmental conservation. Let us be enthusiastic to contribute to this significant undertaking as spring cleanups. With every recycling container we fill, every compostable item we take out, and every step to reduce the waste, we create a cleaner, greener environment. By making sustainable choices, we can reduce waste and build a sustainable future for the Earth.

As we celebrate Earth Day, it's also important to recognize the invaluable contributions of volunteers during National Volunteer Week. These individuals selflessly give their time and energy to support causes they believe in, making a positive impact in our communities and beyond.

I have been working with Devon's family for the past year, and I understand that his disappearance has been a difficult and painful experience for his loved ones. Therefore, it is heartening to know that the government has taken active steps to help find him by increasing the reward to $250,000. I hope that this renewed effort will lead to some positive news and bring comfort to those affected by this tragedy. For more information, please visit
