On Tuesday, December 15, a number people showed up at MP Gerald Keddy's office in Bridgewater to show their concerns for climate change.  This was one of many events that have been going on around Halifax during United Nations Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen.  People gathered around a large oil drum and sang climate change carols.  Passers-by honked and waved.
