We need a sustained commitment to our environment now more than ever. Globally, we're seeing sea levels rise, flash flooding, and record drought. Canada-wide there’s fluctuating temperature extremes and smoke from forest fires. These are some of the effects of climate change. This affects our businesses, transit systems, first response, public services & utilities, and communities. Any leader must approach decision-making with that knowledge. Good environmental stewardship and addressing this challenge head-on is key.
- Push infill over urban sprawl saving money on services, encouraging walkability, and fostering neighbourhood renewal with both new residents and services.
- Return to ETS community bus routes and away from On Demand service.
- Zero approval for new river valley developments that are not essential, not within an established footprint, or on sacred Indigenous land & against the spirit of reconciliation.
- Work with developers to ensure new neighbourhoods integrate mixed use developments, transit infrastructure, multiple modes of transportation and food security.
- Transition for entire City of Edmonton fleet vehicles and buses to hybrid and electric at end of current lifespan.
- Push for planting of 2 million trees within city limits and the expectation that established trees be protected in new developments.
