Proud to run for MAYOR of Maple Ridge
On October 20 ...elect
as your MAYOR!
As I write this we are experiencing a long and difficult heat spell with fires burning all over the province with smoke everywhere putting people with respiratory issues at great risk. We also came perilously close to a flood a couple months ago. This is obviously a pattern of climate change and every community is faced with how to respond. We are already careful how we build at the forest interface and we need to lobby senior government for funding to raise our dykes where appropriate.
We will need to focus on operations and continue our transition to renewable forms of energy production and transportation.
I believe that every new building should contribute to its energy needs, the building code need to be changed to insist on this.
also look at programs that encourage retrofits on poorly performing
buildings. This is where we need to lobby senior governments
to create programs that work and to change regulations like
the building code that will help us build a more efficient and resilient
