Gravenhurst — Councillor — Ward 3

1.     What actions have you personally taken to support a greener, more sustainable climate?

As President of the Severn Bridge Agricultural Society, I am hoping to be introducing a recycling program at the Severn Bridge Fall Fair in 2023. 

As well, we ask the community to join us in cleaning up the Fairgrounds and the surrounding areas on “Clean up Community days”.

In my home, I encourage my family to save energy wherever we can.

Recycling is a Must!

2.     What opportunities for climate leadership at the municipal level (e.g. greenhouse gas emissions (GHGs)) would you champion in one or more of these areas: Buildings | Housing | Land use (sprawl) | Transportation | Other

Looking at town, staff vehicles, possibility of going electric?

Reclaiming Green Spaces-Sustainable community led renewal projects, aimed at getting together as a community and shaping areas to suit the needs of Gravenhurst, whether it be Community Gardens, parks, or anything we need to increase the resilience and combat Climate change. 

I believe that in the classroom young people can be taught the impact of Global warming and how to adapt to climate change. Education empowers all people, but especially motivates the young to take action. 

3. A long-term problem requires a long-term solution. What is your 100-year plan? If elected, what would be your first action?

If elected I will be dedicated to producing behavioral change, educating and raising awareness.
