2020 Municipal Election

We need your help to ensure that active transportation is on the ballot in the 2020 municipal elections.

On October 17th, Nova Scotians will head to the polls to elect the local leaders who will be making active transportation infrastructure decisions for the next 4 years. At Bicycle Nova Scotia, we are looking for local partners or individuals to help us reach out to municipal candidates to answer questions so voters can better understand their position on active transportation. If you want to make sure that the decisions being made are helping you and your community to safely travel in a healthy and environmentally friendly way, this is the perfect opportunity for you to get involved. 

What we will need you to do:

  • Let us know you are interested! Send us an email through the form below so we can put you on the map and start discussing strategy.
  • Finalize the survey. A survey template has been created, but this is the opportunity to add any specific questions about your local area.
  • Distribute to candidates. Get a list of candidates and send the survey questions to them.
  • Gather responses. Answers from participating candidates will need to be put into an easy to read format so we can share them widely.
  • Spread the word! Let people in your community know how the candidates feel about active transportation infrastructure, and encourage them to get out and vote.

Advocacy work has already started in Cape Breton Regional Municipality, Pictou and Halifax, though these groups are still looking for partners! We encourage you to reach out to us if this work interests you, whether or not work has already started in your area. Fill out the form below to let us know you are interested and we can connect you with other interested individuals, and start planning how to put active transportation on the ballot.
