MUSKOKA – What are your municipal candidates’ ideas, opinions and positions around climate action? Climate Action Muskoka (CAM) asked all Muskoka candidates for municipal, district and mayoral positions. Candidate responses are now available on the CAM website: https://www.climateactionmuskoka.org/ Acclaimed candidates were encouraged to respond as well so their constituents have an idea of their intentions over the next four years.
“Many responded with answers that were thoughtful and showed genuine concern for future generations,” says CAM member, Len Ring. “They make for informative reading.”
Here are the questions CAM asked:
1.What actions have you personally taken to support a greener, more sustainable climate?
2. What opportunities for climate leadership at the municipal level (e.g. greenhouse gas emissions (GHGs)) would you champion in one or more of the areas Buildings | Housing | Land Use (sprawl) | Transportation | Other
3. A long-term problem requires a long-term solution. What is your 100-year plan? If elected, what would be your first action?
The municipal election period is October 17 – October 24, 2022. Find links to voter information here: https://www.climateactionmuskoka.org/lets-talk-municipal-politics/
