Tri-Cities Water All Candidates Meeting

  • Douglas College - David Lam 1250 Pinetree Way Coquitlam, BC, V3B 7X3 Canada (map)

Real estate is booming in the Tri-Cities and the region is bracing for exponential growth over the next 10 years, but an underlying reality is the stress that this places on our land and water. Is the Province doing enough to protect water for our quickly growing communities? What role does climate change play in how decisions are made at the local and provincial level? Are the Tri-Cities resilient enough to withstand drought or flooding? And what about those we share the land and water with - the salmon, bears, deer, birds and species at risk. What does strong Provincial leadership look like as our climate continues to change?

We invite you to join us for a special water focused all candidates meeting for the ridings of Port Moody-Coquitlam, Coquitlam-Maillardville, Coquitlam-Burke Mountain and Port Coquitlam on Wednesday April 12th from 7-9pm at Douglas College-Lecture Theatre A1470.

Hear what your local candidates running in the upcoming BC Provincial Elections have to say about their parties platform on water related issues.

This event is being organized by a variety of groups in our community interested in water issues including the Canadian Freshwater Alliance, Sierra Club of BC, Water Watch Salmon Society, Force of Nature Alliance, Rivershed Society of British Columbia, Fraser Riverkeeper and the Coquitlam River Watershed Roundtable.
