VICTORIA, B.C - This week we saw Emergency and Disaster Management legislation introduced in the house. It’s a meaningful step towards building climate resilience yet requires a workforce to make this happen at the urgent scale needed.
"Young people province-wide are struggling to find purposeful, well-paying jobs, while communities grapple with climate crises," said Sonia Furstenau, Leader of the B.C. Greens, and MLA for Cowichan Valley. "A provincially funded Youth Climate Corps would provide a living wage for youth while enhancing climate action and resiliency in B.C."
