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?

Mathew Duchesne

Yes. I have to study this further and ensure it won’t cause a tax increase given the large price tag and all the capital expenses the city is experiencing at this time.

Kevin Hua

Yes. We've already seen the devastating impact and effects and the increasing frequency of extreme climate events caused by climate change on our city like the tornadoes of 2018, the floods of 2019, and the recent derecho that all left devastation in their wake. It is vital to the safety of residents and critical infrastructure that our approach to the climate crisis includes climate adaption to our changing and more volatile climate. For examples, giving consideration putting more of our overhead power lines underground which, while it would be an expensive endeavour, is likely to be worthwhile in protecting our critical energy infrastructure that residents rely on.
