Alex Neufeldt is one of seven young people taking the Ford government to court for weakening Ontario’s 2030 climate target.
As a young entrepreneur, Alex is concerned about the uncertainty climate change creates for her small business. When record-breaking flooding slammed Ottawa in the spring of 2019, it threatened Alex’s fledgling dress-rental business, Closet in the Sky. Alex is concerned extreme weather events in the future could cause delays for customers returning dresses, and she’s worried about how to safely store the designer pieces her company relies upon.
