We are citizens working to educate the public about leaf blowers, and the benefits of leaving fall leaves in our gardens and parks.
We hope to get a bylaw by summer/fall 2021 banning the use of gas leaf blowers at all times in the borough of Cote-des-Neiges-Notre-dame-de-grace. Banning leaf blowers would give us quieter neighbourhoods, cleaner air, healthier citizens and a healthier urban ecosystem. Vancouver has banned them since 2001, and Beaconsfield and St-Lambert have done so more recently. It is time that our borough did so as well.
We are seeking a Treasurer to handle bookkeeping and fundraising efforts, and if fundraising is successful we would use some of the returns to pay this person a stipend. We also need volunteers for handing out flyers and educating the public.
