Pentiction byelection candidates share climate action strategies

Candidates talk climate

Wednesday is the final advanced voting day for the Penticton byelection, with polls open today at the Penticton Trade and Convention Centre until 8 p.m., ahead of regular voting day Saturday.

Local non-profit First Things First Okanagan, a group dedicated to encouraging the public and all levels of government to take actions to halt climate change, sent a brief two-question poll to each of the 10 candidates looking for their plans for climate action.

Specifically, they were asked to share their perspective on how the municipality should be addressing climate change, and how it should be improving vulnerability to floods and forest fires.

“I am happy to see the effort that the candidates put into the responses. Climate change is seen as an important topic for municipal councils to address." said First Things First chairperson Jim Beattie.
