On October 7th, 2019, 100 all-candidate Debates on the Environment will be taking place in ridings across the country. These debates, which are being hosted by local organizations and leaders across sectors, offer a non-partisan forum to bring voters together in their communities to hear candidates' best policy ideas for the environment. All major parties are invited. RSVP or get involved to show our elected leaders that the environment is a priority that no party can ignore.
Coordinated, issue-based, environmental debates have never been held on this scale in Canada. If successful, they will generate enough attention to impact voter and party priorities.
Organizers represent a wide range of sectors, including faith-based groups, secondary and post-secondary institutions, youth-led groups, physicians, businesses and community groups, with the coordinating support of GreenPAC, Canada’s non-partisan organization to build environmental leadership in politics.
Debates will be streamed on Facebook Live and collectively shared after debate day so voter's can hold elected leaders accountable to their commitments.
Each debate will include 4 common questions on critical environmental topics: climate change, water, wilderness conservation and toxics/pollution.
