Join us on April 22 from noon to 1 pm for a discussion on concerns related to climate change, and what the mayor and councillors to be elected this fall can and should do about it.
Host Chris Chang-Yen Phillips will tee up the conversation with a special guest. Then we’ll invite you to join in a deeper discussion of the issues.
This is the seventh in a series of conversations prompted by the People’s Agenda, a document we are compiling based on the responses to this question: What key issue do you want the candidates to talk about as they compete for votes in the 2021 municipal election, and why?
A number of responses sent in by readers so far have coalesced around concerns about whether the City of Edmonton will act on climate change. The people want to know what the candidates plan to do about climate change. For some, this is the only issue that matters as it represents an existential threat; others prioritize other issues as well, but draw connections between climate change and transportation policy, infrastructure decisions, economic diversification, or social justice.
The people want to feel heard.
Closed captioning will be available. Taproot will cover the events, but we will not quote you by name without your permission.
Candidates are welcome, but please take the opportunity to listen rather than to campaign.
The series concludes with one final session in April:
• April 29: Will we build our city intelligently?
