Sonia Furstenau would create a resilience strategy for the province, her leadership campaign announced in late July, as she prepares for the election to decide who will lead the BC Green Party.
Furstenau’s platform focused on improving the resilience of B.C. communities and natural resources.
“This plan takes proactive steps to strengthen our province amidst challenges like climate change and an uncertain global economy. We need to take decisive action to ensure every community in B.C. has access to clean drinking water, basic food security and adequate emergency resources. We must also ensure that the benefits of B.C.’s natural resources flow to our local communities in a fair, equitable manner.”Cowichan Valley Citizen, August 19, 2020
