By Krystalle Ramlakhan, CBC News Ottawa, November 10, 2018

More than 150 people rallied and protested on Parliament Hill Saturday afternoon, calling for Canada's governments to take action to protect the environment and address climate change.

Rallies were also held in Montreal and Sherbrooke, Que., which organizer Camille Goulet said should send a strong signal to the country's political parties.

(...)"It's going to be my first time voting next year, and I want to send a message that I will vote for a government that will put our environment first," said the 17-year-old, who lives in Gatineau.

"We have no choice. It's our planet, it's our home and we have to do something now or we will lose it."
