DOER TO ATTEND GLOBAL CLIMATE CHANGE SUMMIT



Premier Gary Doer is joining Quebec Premier Jean Charest, British Columbia Premier Gordon Campbell, Newfoundland and Labrador Premier Danny Williams and other leaders from around the world at the Governors’ Global Climate Summit 2, On the Road to Copenhagen, which continues today and tomorrow in Los Angeles.
 
Co-hosted by seven U.S. governors including California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger and New York Gov. David Paterson, the summit includes a panel discussion on national and sub-national co‑operation featuring Doer, Wisconsin Gov. Jim Doyle, Nancy Sutley, chair of the White House Council on Environmental Quality, as well as governors from states and provinces in Brazil, Indonesia and Nigeria.
 
“For many years, regional governments have been at the forefront of showing leadership and taking action on climate change,” Doer said.  “We must continue to work together to shape global policy as we prepare for the international agreement that we hope will be completed in Copenhagen later this year.”
 
The premier will also join Carole Vivier, CEO of Manitoba Film and Music, at an event where he will address more than 15 directors, producers and studio executives on the advantages of making movies in Manitoba.
