The idea of climate change labels on the gas pumps did not stick with Port Moody council.
Mayor Mike Clay says the more council looked into the idea, the more they found it to be impractical.
“The pushback on it is it is basically an attempt to shame somebody while they are standing at the gas pump putting gas in their car. There are a lot of things we can do to reduce GHG gas emissions to reduce carbon consumption. Building efficiencies, energy efficiencies, car efficiencies. – the various things we need to do before we need to guilt people for driving their mini-van to take their kids to soccer practice.”
Clay says industry also pushed back, with Chevron writing to say they would not take part if it were to happen.
He says there were just to many questions, and council decided it wasn’t worth moving forward on.
