As we have expanded we are looking for volunteers to help with routine tasks. The amount of time you can contribute is totally up to you. We appreciate your support.

Bicycle Action Committee Questions to Candidates

The following questions were sent to each candidate running in the 2018 Cobourg Municipal Election along with some background information about the Bicycle Action Committee (BAC), Cobourg’s Cycling Infrastructure, and Proposed Routes.

  1. To what extent do you personally support our rationale and goals for the improvement of cycling infrastructure over the next term? Please explain why.
  2. If elected, will you act to implement both the proposed cycling routes and the priorities for completion? If not, please explain why.
  3. In order to achieve the goals outlined in our document, the annual budget allocation ($20,000 ) will have to increase over the next four years. Will you support the continuance of this budgetary item and raise it to at least $25,000/yr. over the period of the mandate?

Click here to read the candidates’ responses to the three questions.

Also, dont forget that tonight (October 12th) is Sustainable Cobourg’s All Candidates Forum at the Venture 13 Innovation Centre located at 739 D’Arcy St (across from the CCC). Doors open at 6:30pm, with the forum starting at 7:00pm.

We hope to see you there.

Cobourg Municipal All-Candidates Forum hosted by Sustainable Cobourg, Oct. 12

This free event will give residents the chance to meet the candidates who wish to represent them on Cobourg Council one last time and learn how each candidate will address the three pillars of sustainability (economic, environmental, social).

“Choosing a Council that makes decisions beyond a four year horizon, one that understands the ‘triple bottom line’ rather than just the economic one, and a Council that supports reducing GHG emissions with a Climate Action Plan, is a Council that can make a real difference to Cobourg and its residents” says Sustainable Cobourg President, Gigi Ludorf-Weaver.

All 9 candidates for the position of Cobourg Councillor have confirmed their attendance, as well as both candidates for Deputy Mayor of Cobourg.

No pre-registration is required. The venue is the lecture hall in the new Venture 13 Innovation Centre across from the CCC. Doors will open at 6:30 p.m. and the forum begins at 7:00 p.m.

The event, moderated by Jayne Finn (V-P of Sustainable Cobourg), will provide each candidate the opportunity to share their views on topics related to the 3 pillars of sustainability (environmental, economic, social) through a set of prepared questions. Community members will also have the opportunity to submit their questions.

Please submit your questions via email by October 10 to gludorfweaver@sustainablecobourg.ca.
