Be a Citizen Climate Super Hero    

The City of Maple Ridge is planning important steps to combat climate change, and they need your help. In less time than it takes to watch an episode of your favourite series on Netflix, you can be a climate super hero simply by going to the City's public engagement website "We're setting our sites on a greener future". From there: 

  • click/tap the button "Download webinar slides" for info on the proposed new GHG emissions targets, and why they are needed.
  • click/tap the button "Complete a mini action plan" and follow the instructions to create your very own plan (that you can pin on your wall and send to the City)
  • answer the City’s survey about the new targets for reducing emissions across the city, and bold moves to fight climate change.

The survey is open until March 18. So let your voice be heard, and tell the City we are ready to be bold!

There are so many reasons to switch to an EV it's hard to know where to start the list. From fun-to-drive through cheap-to-run to crazy-incentives-&-rebates, there's nothing not to love.
