Province seeks input for next climate plan

VICTORIA – To ensure B.C.’s future climate actions reflect the values of British Columbians, Premier Christy Clark today invited families and members of the public to tell government what they would like to see in B.C.’s new Climate Leadership Plan, to be released later this spring.

The next public engagement for the Climate Leadership Plan will launch on Monday, Jan. 25 and will run for 60 days.

Similar to the first public engagement that ran last summer, this next round will also be web-based. Concurrent with the public engagement, sector-specific industry consultations will also take place, along with public polling by Ipsos Reid.

More details about the second round of public consultation on B.C.’s Climate Leadership Plan will be come soon, and plan development information can be found on http://engage.gov.bc.ca/climateleadership.
