While most grandmothers will be enjoying Canada Day watching their grandchildren play, 75-year-old Dorothy Cutting will be starting a journey North to raise awareness about the growing threat of climate change.

“It’s amazing when you care very strongly about something you seem to be able to acquire an outside energy,” said Cutting from her home on Salt Spring Island today.

“I want our neighbours in the North to know that we care about what is happening to their homeland and their way of life.”

This grandmother is worried about the kind of future her grandkids will have if she doesn’t do something about global warming which she calls “global heating”.

“Warming sounds too soft and cuddly,” she said.
