Queen's Park is brimming this afternoon with hundreds of environmentally conscious youngsters who have a message for politicians such as Ontario Premier Doug Ford: Climate change can't be ignored.

Today's rally in Toronto is one of many taking place all over the globe right now as part of something called the "global youth climate strike movement."

"Inspired by the young Swedish climate activist, Greta Thunberg, thousands of students around the world will be walking out of their classrooms to demand action on climate change," reads a message sent by organizers ahead of the event, which kicked off outside the provincial leglislature at 12:30 p.m. Friday afternoon.
