Q5 - Will you commit to prioritizing climate adaptation planning for the city, including measures to protect people, infrastructure and city services, and to ensure that the city's most vulnerable populations are supported during extreme climate events?

Miranda Gray

Yes. The derecho highlighted that not every lesson we could have learned from the tornado was learned or applied in our next mass weather event. I am committed to ensuring councillors, their teams, and community groups get training to assist first responders during events like cold snaps, heat waves and days long power events. While some wards have mastered pulling together in emergencies, other took days to react. We can and must do better by planning, training and role-playing emergencies. The next "once in 100 years" emergency is likely less than 2 years away.
