Richmond / YVR
2018 Municipal Election
Would your local candidates for mayor and council vote in favour of increasing cycling education, investment, and infrastructure that would #UnGapTheMap in your municipality and the region more broadly? And would they make these commitments within the next four-year election cycle?
We asked all the candidates to complete a brief survey about their position on cycling, and the results are in! (Download PDF)
* Candidate responses listed in alphabetical order within each election race, beginning with Mayor.
