NCLGA Executive Recommendation: Endorse | Endorsed by the NCLGA Membership
Whereas the Province of BC has released the Clean BC Roadmap to 2030 outlining measures to reach its legislated greenhouse gas (GHG) emission reduction targets; and
Whereas zero-emission vehicles may not be a suitable alternative for remote rural resource based industries including forestry, oil and gas, and agriculture; and
Whereas public transit is not available in many rural and remote communities;
Therefore be it resolved that NCLGA and UBCM lobby the provincial government to develop a Clean BC Transportation Plan specific to rural and northern communities that addresses the unique challenges and identifies how the GHG targets can be achieved.
