Green (campaign) trails - Vancouver Voice:
In 2005, Pollard signed Vancouver on as a Cool City — a designation in which the city committed to reducing greenhouse gas emissions. Steps already taken include switching traffic signals to LED lights and increasing the city’s tree canopy through the Urban Forestry Program. Vancouver’s goal of planting around 800 trees per year is one component of being a Cool City. Since 2005 more than 3,400 trees have been planted.
According to the Sierra Club, an environmental group endorsing the mayor, Pollard has promoted environmental policies and isn’t afraid to do what is right.
