Telephone Town Halls – CleanBC – Results

Engagement Summary

Our CleanBC plan is a pathway to a more prosperous, balanced, and sustainable future. CleanBC includes significant actions to reduce carbon pollution, use our clean energy to power B.C.’s economy, and create opportunities across the province.

We are seeking input over the next year on initiatives that get us to our climate goals. Together, in collaboration with Indigenous peoples, we will work to build more resilient communities, where everyone benefits from a cleaner future.

Participants could join in one of 4 Climate BC telephone town halls held in March 2019.
A telephone town hall is an interactive conference call. The telephone town hall was an opportunity to learn more and comment on how the Province will make things better and more affordable for people while reducing pollution and protecting the environment.

Participants had an opportunity to ask the Minister of the Environment and Climate Change George Heyman and guests questions and give opinions on different aspects of the plan by responding to polling questions.
