City of Greater Shepparton declares a climate emergency

City of Greater Shepparton declares a climate emergency

Eight of the nine councilors were at the March meeting of the City of Greater Shepparton council resulting in the vote to declare a climate emergency being evenly split  - four saying "yes" to the emergency and four giving the idea the thumbs down.
And that required the Mayor, Cr Seema Abdullah (pictured), to use her casting vote, which to the delight of those watching who had worked hard to see the emergency idea adopted, she said "yes" to the climate emergency motion.
Because of the COVIG-19 dilemma, the meeting and ruling by the Federal Government, many who had agitated vigorously for the adoption of a climate emergency, had stayed away and so watched a Facebook live stream.
