Mayors across the region, in both Canada and the U.S., are banding together against climate change.
Members of the Great Lakes and St. Lawrence Cities Initiative are gathering this week in Montreal for an annual meeting.
They announced their plan to move forward with their support of the Paris Climate Agreement. Their move comes in response to President Donald Trump's withdrawal from the agreement.
The mayors also say they’ll push for U.S. funding of the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative, which was eliminated from Trump’s budget plan.
