How you can help Meadowbrook!

Earlier this month, Les Amis de Meadowbrook, in collaboration with Héritage Laurentien and supported by dozens of environmental groups and thousands of citizens island-wide, announced that on April 19, 2010 (next Monday) we will be taking our campaign directly to Montreal City Hall in an attempt to convince the Mayor and members of Council to preserve Meadowbrook.

We are encouraging people who want to preserve our remaining green spaces to come in peace to the next Municipal Council meeting (275 Notre-Dame E. at 6:30 p.m.) on the 19th to ask that Meadowbrook be saved, and to wait on their answer.

We were just wondering if you – being an influencer – could lend a hand?

We need to get the word out about April 19th, and if you feel as passionately about green spaces as we do, we hoped that you might help spread that message through your own network. Whether it be an email, a facebook post, a Tweet, or maybe even a blog article, whatever small action you could do on our behalf would be greatly appreciated. What do we offer in return? Solidarity, of course. The S.O.S. Meadowbrook campaign will not disappear once this fight is over. When it comes to saving Montreal’s green spaces, we’re in it for the long haul.
