Q8 - Will you support our target for a 40% tree canopy cover per neighborhood and protection of mature trees through the new Tree Protection By-Law?

Sean Devine

Yes. I am absolutely in support of this, having seen my own neighbourhood lose much of our canopy in 2018, and now having seen many other parts of Ottawa suffer a similar loss in 2022. I've worked closely with Ecology Ottawa, Tree Canada and the City's Trees in Trust programs before on several tree-planting initiatives, and look forward to resuming that work.

Myles Egli

Yes. I would support a target of 40% tree canopy per neighborhood. I would, also, protect the existing mature trees in our neighborhood. Many are fearful, because of recent weather events, that the more mature trees are at risk during extreme weather events. We need to educate the general population so that some of these fears are alleviated.

Peter Westaway

Yes. Planting and taking care of our trees should be our biggest priority. We need more trees.

Michael Wood

Yes. Providing we have the labour and the what the cost would look like I will commit to meeting with you and coming up with the best solution for Ward 9.
