Our youth have been out in force this election!
One group of students has just put in a ton of work. They’ve dug up which candidates think we should keep our planet livable.
The Comox Youth Climate Council did a deep dive into the priorities of our electoral candidates. They also ran a series of virtual Q&As with municipal candidates.
From their findings, they’ve selected their top candidates from Courtenay, Comox, and Cumberland, as well as those running for the Regional Districts.
All the candidates they’ve chosen are running campaigns that most align with the group’s core values.
These include taking action on the climate crisis, justice, equity, diversity, decolonization, anti-racism, accessibility, and inclusion.
With voting happening tomorrow, here’s a quick read-through of all the names that hit the mark for these kids who care about our future, and their own.
