Developing the Plan: Truper McBride

Truper McBride was an advocate for the Cochrane Sustainability Plan (CSP) in its earliest days.  Early in his second term as mayor of the Town of Cochrane, he helped lead the charge in developing the CSP.  Here is an interview with him from 2010.

Name: Truper McBride

I live in East Cochrane with my wife Jennifer and our two young boys Sam and Ben.  I served on Council for nine years, with the last three as Mayor.

How long you have lived in Cochrane?

15 years

What actions do you currently take to do your part towards achieving the targets in the Cochrane Sustainability Plan?

  • I walk to the RancheHouse to work everyday leaving the car at home
  • I am working to implement regional and local transit
  • I use a push mower to cut the lawn instead of a gas lawnmower

Why should residents get involved in making the CSP a reality?

The CSP represents what the people of Cochrane have told us overwhelmingly they want our Town to be in 50 years.  In order for us to make the CSP vision a reality and to meet the targets in the Plan, everyone needs to lend a hand and declare action.
