Diana Dilworth

Independent incumbent candidate for Port Moody City Council


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.

I have supported all of the City's progressive initiatives related to addressing climate action in the past. Moving ahead, I would support the development of a plan to a Community Energy and Emission Plan. I will continue to support the work of the City's new dedicated Sustainability and Energy Coordinator. I will ask that we implement policies to ensure more parking/storage space for EV vehicles and bicycles.


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.

Compact Communities: create density in transit-oriented development areas. Multi-Modal Transportation: plan for convenient pedestrian and cyclist access, and bike storage, at frequent transit networks. Renewable Energy: continue to explore opportunities to provide for alternate energies at civic facilities and on private properties.
