Get the water right and other parts of the community resiliency puzzle will fall into place

“To start 2023, the Partnership for Water Sustainability is shining the spotlight is on municipal councillors and regional district directors in British Columbia who were elected to office in October 2022,” states Kim Stephens, Partnership Executive Director.

“As the new folks learn the ropes of the Community Charter (or Local Government Act in the case of regional district electoral areas) and grow into their new responsibilities, we hope they will come to appreciate the insights that flow from our ‘stories behind the stories’. These are shared by those leading changes in thinking and implementing. Everyone learns from stories.”

“Written in a conversational style, our approach in an essay published by Asset Management BC is to engage their audience rather than to lecture. We hope the use of clear language will help the Class of ’22 on their personal journeys of discovery as elected representatives. Moreover, we hope all our readers will learn something useful from the essay.”
