Climate action open houses shuttered in Nelson due to safety concerns
A series of open houses expected to explain the Regional District of Central Kootenay’s Climate Action Plan have been cancelled due to fears for the safety of those attending, the RDCK reported on Thursday.
Stuart Horn, RDCK Chief Administrative Officer, said “safety concerns for those attending the events” had led to his decision.
“We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, but at this time postponing the open houses is the responsible course of action,” Horn said.
The series of 17 open houses were scheduled to run from May 23 to July 5.
“Our primary objective is to create a safe and respectful environment for all participants to share constructive feedback. We value the input from the public and want to ensure all members of the community have a chance to participate without the fear of intimidation.”
