B.C. Lions urge students to take action

Pro football players Jason Arakgi and Jon Hameister-Ries were in Langley talking to elementary students about reducing environmental impact

Little changes in their every day lives can help students reduce their environmental impact and “take green action for the Earth.”

That was the message delivered by a pair of B.C. Lions football players, Jason Arakgi and Jon Hameister-Ries, who visited Walnut Grove’s James Kennedy Elementary on Jan. 25.

The players were speaking to the students as part of the FortisBC Energy Champions program.

The program is designed for elementary school children and emphasizes the importance of teaching students to make little changes in their every day lives which will help reduce their environmental footprint.

This is the fourth year of the program and in 2012 alone, it visited 75 elementary schools throughout the province.

In addition to visiting James Kennedy Elementary that day, the players also stopped at Fort Langley Elementary and Alex Hope Elementary.
