“As a rural community, one of the ways we support our urban neighbours is through the care of our natural and ecological resources that benefit the population as a whole. Although our influence over carbon emissions may be less in urban areas, smaller communities play an important role in responding to a changing climate, and in joining the PCP program, we are demonstrating that climate action is important to our municipality, and sending that message to our community and to our guests.”Nicholas Popovich, former Director of Development Services and Sustainability Committee representative
