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?

Sean Devine

Yes. Emergency preparedness is one of my core campaign priorities. My own community of Trend Arlington was devastated by the 2018 tornado, which had as severe a local impact as the 2022 derecho. We are seeing a drastic in climate-related natural disasters everywhere. If we are to responsible in protecting our communities than the city must enact better preparedness measures now.

Myles Egli

Yes. As a resident of Ward 9 - Knoxdale-Merivale, I have lived through both the Tornado of 2018 and the Derecho of 2022. I believe that the time for emergency preparedness is long overdue which is why it is one of the five pillars in my platform that can can be found at https://mylesegli4ward9.ca/my-platform/. I will work with all the stakeholders, including community associations and churches, to make sure plans are in place when the next extreme weather event occurs. I would work to ensure all Community Associations' buildings are equipped with generators so they can be hub where people can go in times of emergencies.

Peter Westaway

Yes. We will see more significant weather events in our near future and we must be better prepared to deal with the aftermath. The power lines that were so vulnerable in that wind storm must be buried so they won't be susceptible to so much damage.

Michael Wood

Yes. My family home was directly hit by the 2018 tornado. I will commit to a full review of the climate adaption planning for the city in order to ensure that the residents are best protected including infrastructure and our city services.
