CityCaucus.com's Civic Leaders Car Free Week challenge is proud to announce another participant!
We're now up to four civic leaders who are taking CityCaucus.com's Car Free Week challenge from July 19 - 26. We welcome Port Coquitlam City Councillor Brad West to take part. West, 24, is BC's youngest elected official.
"We talked about CityCaucus.com's Car Free Week at Council, and it was decided that I would have the most stamina," jokes West. "It's great to have someone here in the Tri-Cities participating in your Car Free Week. It will definitely be interesting to me to see the experience of not driving will be."
To date, Mayor George Peary (Abbotsford), Councillor Suzanne Anton (Vancouver) and Councillor Jonathon Cote (New Westminster) have already agreed to participate, and now we can add Brad West from Port Coquitlam.
"I've always thought that citizens outside Vancouver have a tougher time getting around than those in the City of Vancouver," adds West. "I guess I'll know better after taking my car off the road for your challenge."
CityCaucus.com are still looking for a few more good men and women to take their Civic Leaders Car Free Week challenge. Our deadline for participants is July 15th at midnight. Any elected Metro Vancouver mayors or councillors who use their cars for commuting in at least 80% of their travel are welcomed to participate. Car keys must be reliquished to a City Manager or spouse for the whole week, and car pooling, transit, walking, cycling or skateboarding are viable transportation alternatives.
