2020 Municipal Election

The results are in!

For the past few weeks, we have been working with interested individuals and cycling groups in Nova Scotia to reach out to candidates in different areas of the province. The upcoming municipal election will determine who will be making active transportation and cycling infrastructure decisions for the next 4 years. Responses from this survey, below, can be used to help you better understand their position on active transportation infrastructure.

Spread the word, and don’t forget to vote October 17th!

The information gathered in this survey will help us to continue an open dialogue with elected officials over the next four years. In particular, we would like to thank the Halifax Cycling Coalition, who drafted the initial version of the survey, which was then adapted for each specific region.
