Disappointing Discussion At Environmental Election Forum

by: Brayden McNeill October 15th 2014

It’s surprising how little can be said during 90 minutes of environmentally related election campaigning. On October 14th a coalition of seven local environmental organizations hosted the Environmental Election Forum, ostensibly to environmental issues affecting the Region. Almost 40 candidates from across the Region were in attendance, including candidates for Regional Chair, Regional Council, Mayors and City Councilors. Each candidate was given a strict two minute time limit to outline their position on the environment.

The series of short briefings were filled with self-praise and tired platitudes on environmental awareness. Most candidates praised existing environmental initiatives, calling for better transit, trails and parks. Many boasted of their green life styles. Unfortunately few of the candidates have any new initiatives to seriously curb energy consumption and fossil fuel use in the Region...
