A while back I wrote about the way many successful environmental organizations have inspired the creation of affiliates. (See that post here.) I recently came across a newspaper article that covers the launch of Pollution Probe's affiliate group at Carleton University. The article, printed in the Ottawa Citizen back in December 1969, provides some interesting insight into the minds of early Canadian environmentalists. You can read the article here.
(For those of you keeping track, the original Pollution Probe, formed at the University of Toronto, was formed in February 1969.)
