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?

Brandon Russell

Yes! We need to have both more internal and external voices at city hall showcasing the impotence of climate programs.

Stuart MacKay

Yes. As we have already seen here in Ottawa, extreme weather events including storms and flooding will be with us for the foreseeable future. We need to develop resilient civic infrastructure to deal with the extreme weather events, which include developing greener streets with more vegetation that allows for better stormwater management. I would   also recommend that council create the position of a City of Ottawa Chief Heat Officer, who would be responsible for crafting and implementing heat mitigation strategies for Ottawa residents.

Ariel Troster

Yes. Storms and floods are becoming more common due to climate change and we need to adapt and help prevent future disasters.
