The Town of Quispamsis is a founding member of the Federation of Canadian Municipalities Partners for Climate Change (PCP).
Quispamsis is investing in long term sustainability of its local climate as well as long-term environmental protection and has taken many steps to reduce greenhouse gases in municipal operations, including building retrofits and LEED Gold and Green Globe building designs, purchase of several hybrid vehicles, adoption of human powered active transportation plan, sustainable development, hydrogeological modeling, and anti-idling policies.

If you’ve been thinking of buying an electric vehicle, stop dreaming and start driving! Canada’s new Incentives for zero-emission vehicles (iZEV) program offers $2500-5000 toward the purchase of an eligible new vehicle.
(Want more background info? Here are quick primers on EVs and plug-in hybrids; how and where EVs can be charged; and comparing costs, emissions and environmental impacts of EVs and conventional vehicles. As well, here’s my first-person account after one year of owning a plug-in EV.)
Electric vehicles are one of the very best ways we can reduce our carbon footprint, and they’re a lot cheaper today than they were just a week ago – so why not check out the options that suit your needs? Then stop dreaming and start driving – sustainably!
