Louise Comeau, director of the Sage Centre's climate project, is joining the provincial government's climate action secretariat, Public Eye has learned. Our understanding is Ms. Comeau will likely be the secretariat's public outreach and strategic engagement executive director. Unlike her new boss Graham Whitmarsh, Ms. Comeau has an impressive documented environmental background, which includes a stint as the policy, advocacy and communications director general of the Federation of Canadian Municipalities Centre for Sustainable Community Development. She's also a past associate with the International Institute for Sustainable Development, which counts climate action secretariat special advisor Warren Bell among its members.
