Q9 - Will you prioritize the conservation of existing greenspace, as well as biodiversity on both city and privately owned lands by amending the property standards by-law, as well as increasing targets for and allocating more funds towards naturalization?

Catherine Kitts

Yes. I am in support of increasing targets, and supported Councillor Dudas’ motion to explore feasibility of naturalizing right-of-way front yards. I would be cautious about allocating funds, however; I think we can achieve this through partnering with organizations like Just Food to increase the number of community gardens in our City, and community organizations who are committed to naturalization projects, like lending my support to the Greater Avalon Community Associations biodiversity initiatives.  

Yvette Ashiri

Yes. Another part of my climate action plan is to create more greenspace as well as maintain and protect the ones we have. As a council, it is necessary to go over the city budget and increase how much we're spending to protect our species and environment.
