2015: Will candidates be listening?

Welcome to 2015!

2015 is shaping up to be a year of resolution for BC and Canada in energy. This is the year we should know if BC’s hyped LNG export scheme will finally see daylight before its supposed “opportunity window” slams shut due to competitive and price pressures.

The Five Most Important Climate Solutions for City Councils in BC

1. Make a Sustainable Transportation Commitment

to aim for zero-carbon local transportation by creating ‘complete streets’ designed for all users, walkable neighbourhoods, and a world-class cycling environment; and by adopting world-class policies for transportation demand management, transit, ride-sharing, car-sharing, electric vehicles and freight.

There are great examples of pedestrian streets and centres in Europe. In Copenhagen, 36% of commute and school trips are made by bike; Bogota and Curitiba have shown the way for bus rapid transport; San Diego is showing the way for electric vehicles.
