The mountains and rivers in Alberta, including the river valley in Edmonton, are my happy place. Camping, hiking, snowshoeing… reconnecting with nature. Increasing wildfires and decreasing snow cover are threatening these things I love. A low-carbon city will help protect these things, and have many other benefits for Edmonton… green spaces, active transit, economic diversity, innovation, inclusion, community, resilience. I’m not only concerned about climate change, but also a response to the global pandemic that ensures a just recovery and transition to a better future. I support climate action in Edmonton and ask City Council to say #Yes2ClimateYEG.
