" 'Is it too ambitious? Is it not ambitious enough?' asks climate change specialist Leya Barry.
Mississauga will let the public have its say on a $450 million draft climate change action plan that aims to reduce greenhouse gas emissions in the city by 80 per cent by 2050.
The plan, described as "a path forward for climate action" over 10 years, calls for solar panels on municipal buildings, electric vehicle charging stations throughout the city, an expansion of pedestrian and cycling infrastructure, a greening of the city's bus fleet and a retrofit of all municipal buildings to be near net zero."
