Municipal Elections Candidate Surveys on Water Issues
Where do municipal candidates stands on important water-related issues in your community?
On October 20, B.C. heads to the polls for municipal elections. Civic elections are important because decisions made at the city and regional district level directly impact you and your local waterways. Municipalities are at the forefront of confronting and adapting to our changing climate. They develop programs, manage infrastructure, access funding and resources and use by-laws to implement climate and water-focused policies.
We have an opportunity to select candidates who put the environment, water and fish habitat at the forefront of decision-making.
With our partners in Our Water BC (Freshwater Alliance and Fraser Riverkeeper), we asked candidates in 10 communities what they thought about issues like environmental degradation, First Nations collaboration, water pricing and flood infrastructure. Click the links below to read their responses.
