Shuswap Climate Action Society

We are a non-profit, non-partisan group of volunteers and concerned citizens providing information and community support for climate action in the North Okanagan-Shuswap region of British Columbia, Canada.

2022 Municipal Election
City of Salmon Arm Candidates Weigh in on Climate Change

Cities are on the forefront of climate impacts and have direct influence over half of Canada's GHG emissions. This means that local governments are crucial in the fight against the climate crisis. Shuswap Climate Action Society (SCAS) strongly believes that voting for climate champions will make the difference between communities that are well prepared and those that will struggle to rise to the climate challenge. 

SCAS contacted all Salmon Arm candidates running for mayor and council to ask four climate-related questions. Their answers are offered here to assist voters in understanding the perspectives and platforms of each candidate with respect to the climate crisis. Please click on the button below to access the questions and answers from candidates. All responses are completely unedited and unaltered. The page will be updated as we obtain additional replies.
