Islanders can take part in an online session tonight to provide input, ask questions and learn more about the sustainable communities initiative.
The initiative will help Island communities collaborate and take the lead to find new and sustainable ways of fuelling their homes and businesses. The virtual consultation will be streamed live through the provincial government’s Facebook page tonight at 5:30 p.m.
“After we announced our sustainable communities project in February, we planned to visit Island communities from tip-to-tip to carry out public consultations in March, but we had to adjust our plans due to COVID-19,” said Transportation, Infrastructure and Energy Minister Steven Myers. “As we continue to adapt to our new normal, we are finding creative ways of engaging with Islanders and this virtual consultation ensures we can connect with people in a way that’s safe for everyone.”
During the live event, Myers and staff will monitor comments, answer questions and share more information about the initiative.
Islanders can send questions beforehand to email@example.com and their questions will be addressed during the consultation. A series of in-person public consultations will be held at a later date, respecting public health measures for gatherings.
