Nanaimo declared a climate emergency in 2019. The city plan says it will
cut its emissions in half by 2030 – just eight years from now. What will our
candidates for mayor and council do to achieve that target?
Voters will be able to talk with them during a meet-and-greet session from
6 to 6:45 pm, and then hear their responses to a series of questions on zoning, land
use, transportation, low-carbon energy systems, food security, recycling, and more.
The BC Greens do not endorse any municipal candidates, this session is purely for information to voters and all candidates in the running were invited.
Protecting your health
BC Greens recognize that airborne illnesses and pollutants pose a significant health risk to everyone, especially the young, elderly, and immunocompromised, while caregivers, healthcare professionals, and support staff come into regular contact with vulnerable persons. When choosing venues, BC Greens prioritize outdoor spaces, and indoor spaces with good ventilation. In closed indoor spaces, we encourage attendees to wear well-fitting masks (N95, KN95, or KF94), especially during the respiratory-illness season.
Creating safe spaces
The BC Green Party is committed to providing an environment free of discrimination and harassment, where all individuals are treated with respect and dignity, can contribute fully and have equal speaking opportunities. To support this commitment, all event attendees will be expected to follow the standards of our Safe Spaces Participant's Guide.
