Environment and the City
Halifax Regional Municipality, along with all Nova Scotian municipalities, are holding municipal elections on October 17, 2020. The results of this 2020 election will set the tone of Halifax’s locallybased environmental action for the next four years. The unanimous adoption of the Halifax Green Network Plan and Halifax’s climate change action plan, as well as the unprecedented community
support for climate, nature, and sustainability – seen through the climate marches, support for Blue Mountain-Birch Cove Lakes Regional Park, and the success of the Shaw Wilderness Park amongst
many other events – have shown that now is the time to be ambitious and committed in building our community around sustainability. This election season, you can help make climate and environmental justice top election issues.
