Minister Fleming - Please Electrify BC's School Bus Fleet!

Diesel school buses are bad for our kids' health and bad for the climate.

Electric school buses are now on the road - some made in Canada.

A bus bought today lasts a long time, and buying a new diesel bus locks us into many years of pollution.

So every new school bus bought in BC from this point forward should be electric, starting today.

And, given the climate crisis, we need to transition the existing diesel buses as fast as possible.

The more of us that contact the BC Education Minister to ask him to move quickly on this, the more likely we'll see action! Please consider signing your name and sharing this petition with others.

Dear Minister Fleming:

I am in full support of transitioning BC's school bus fleet to electric as soon as possible.

Given new buses last many years, we should not be buying any more diesel buses that lock us into more pollution - every new one from this point forward should be electric.

Moreover, we need action to transition the existing diesel buses to electric within 10 years. We are in a climate crisis and we should also not be exposing our kids to any more harmful diesel fumes.

Thank you in advance for acting on this issue.

Yours sincerely,
