Community Energy and Emissions Plan (CEEP)

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link


In April 2019, the City of Moncton joined cities around the world in declaring a climate emergency. Key components of Moncton's Climate Emergency Declaration include committing to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions as well as understanding and identifying the resources necessary to achieve this goal.

The City of Moncton’s Climate Action Report outlined that the City must make it a priority to complete a strategic Community Energy and Emissions Plan (CEEP) that will guide Moncton's energy future and ensure that its GHG emissions are sufficiently reduced.

    Are we going to prioritize reducing car dependance or focus on building infrastructure for electric vehicles? For a little bit of context on how to answer this question, here is how I see the difference between the two solutions. There are advantages to both, however EVs still require massive amounts of space for parking for example. Massive parkings increases distances between destinations, which in turn increases car dependancy.

    Good morning, 

    Thank you for your question!

    The Community Energy and Emissions Plan will consider both reducing car dependency and electrification.

    Let us know if you have any other questions or concerns in the meantime. 

    Kind regards,
    Michelle

    To whom it may concern. I have read the Climate Action Plan Report 2020 and thought it to be a good and broad approach. However, I would like to propose an alternative for the following two statements: Appendix B, where it reads "and have a vegetarian option." Appendix C, where it reads: Consider offering vegetarian or vegan options. I am all for offering vegetarian or vegan options; and that people have choices. However, I find it unacceptable under the guise of impacting the environment. Statistics Canada shows that Canada's TOTAL emissions for agriculture (both crops AND livestock), is less than 10%. https://www.canada.ca/en/environment-climate-change/services/environmental-indicators/greenhouse-gas-emissions.html Going vegetarian/vegan brings its own environmental impacts: https://www.bbc.com/future/article/20200211-why-the-vegan-diet-is-not-always-green Lastly, going vegan would only make a 2.6% impact on GHG emissions: https://clear.ucdavis.edu/blog/what-if-united-states-stopped-eating-meat Ideally, I would like the statements mentioned above to be changed to reflect potentially limiting food waste instead. This could be accomplished by focusing on buying locally grown, produced, packaged foods and choosing those that are in season. Maybe buy in bulk and share? https://ourworldindata.org/food-waste-emissions Regards, Dan Fournier 32 Deerfield Dr. Moncton NB
