My submission re: the BC Clean Transportation intention paper

The Provincial Government is developing a climate action strategy, "Clean Growth", that will be integrated with the Economic Development Strategy, #BCTech Strategy and Emerging Economy Task Force; to be released in fall of 2018.

They have released a set of Intention Papers, which discuss aspects of the strategy in the first of three core areas:

  • Clean Transportation
  • Clean, Efficient Buildings, and
  • Clean Growth Program for Industry
The public is invited to view these papers here, and respond to clean.growth@gov.bc.ca with comments by August 24, 2018.


I've written a submission, which can be found below.

"Who is Sara Duncan?" Video up on my Facebook page



An introductory video of yours truly.. we'll see how it goes - and I thought nothing was harder than creating a voicemail greeting 
This video covers why I'm running for Sidney Council, and what values I would bring to the team.
Next installments I'm mulling will cover my thoughts on affordable housing, transportation, community building, and responding to global changes in how we use energy, and relate to the environment and each other at the local level.
