Tree protection at tonight’s budget forum

healthy lungsTree reps from Kitchissippi Ward will be on hand at tonight’s community budget meeting for 3 urban core wards.

We have created a budget flyer that outlines how the 2015 budget can protect_mature_trees_in_urban_core (PDF will load). Community associations and groups have endorsed and will circulate it.

As always, when it comes to money, there seems to be too little of it, and many ideas about how to spend it. Our goal at tonight’s meeting is to bring tree protection into the picture. If the city is committed to mitigating climate change, ensuring quality of life in urban neighbourhoods, and enforcing its own by-laws, tree protection has to figure into the budget.

Thank you to the 3 city councillors who are convening this gathering. It’s time that those living in the city’s core have a chance to speak out about what matters to us.
