Survey Answers - Connie Fogal

IDEA new councillor running for mayor of Vancouver 


Do you support raising {your municipality’s} community greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions reduction targets to meet or beat the new province-wide standard of 40% by 2030, 60% by 2040 and 80% by 2050 (percentages refer to a reduction below 2007 levels)? [Note that some cities already match the 80% target but lack interim targets, which are crucial to meeting these goals!]



Will you submit a formal request to council to adopt these targets within one year of being elected?



Are you in favour of transparent, annual measuring and reporting of [your municipality’s] community-wide emissions?



Will you submit a formal request to council to ensure transparent, annual measuring and reporting of community-wide emissions, within one year of being elected?



Will you commit to taking a leadership role in ensuring that city council and staff work with community members, businesses, developers, and other stakeholders to achieve these community-wide targets in a meaningful way and within the specified time frame?



Describe three steps you will take during your first year in office to uphold this commitment.

1. Set up a measuring process to identify and quantify the chemicals descending on us from the sky from the weather/manipulation program in operation globally all of which play the major role in the climate issues facing the earth. 2. Take steps to stop the proliferation of chemicals dropping on Vancouver . 3. Ensure no 5G communication system is operative in Vancouver, only fibre optics, and take steps to remove it from UBC because the EMF frequencies are harmful to our environment and personal health and play a major role in the climate issues.


Force of Nature’s framework emphasizes “five key concepts” of urban climate solutions. What ideas or initiatives would you bring forth to promote, encourage or enforce the reduction of community-wide GHG emissions in each of the following categories: compact communities, multi-modal transportation, renewable energy, green jobs, and circular economy.

Funding for a proper transportation system including more buses especially electric or hybrid buses, more subway and sky train services.. Renewable energy is a must. Technology exists to remove our dependence completely away from fossil fuels.I would actively seek out the available alternatives and implement them. I would seek out the best minds for this. The little Japanese scooters that operate on one wheel should be encouraged for use by locals who do not have far to travel.
