Tweedsmuir glacier

Check out the pictures in this "home movie"with NDP leader Jack Layton talking about the growing crisis of melting glaciers - in particular the Tweedsmuir glacier in Yukon's Kluane National Park, North America's largest wilderness preserve, which Jack visited with Olivia Chow.

You can also read about the NDP's climate change priorities including investments in public transit, home retrofit programs and just transitions for workers who's jobs are lost due to climate change.

Gravity is moving the melting Tweedmuir Glacier toward the Alsep River where it may block it completely. This movement is known as "surging".
