I am deeply disappointed by the support the PC candidate has received from local leaders many of whom declared a Climate Emergency last year and claim to be aware of the existential threat of climate breakdown.
Graydon Smith claims, “this distinguished list of leaders recognize what’s at stake”. Well, obviously, they do not if they can support the actions of the PC provincial government over the past 4 years and then suggest voting for more of the same.
The Doug Ford Conservatives have opposed initiatives to mitigate and to adapt to the coming changes at every turn. Recently, Ford has doubled down on his ‘sprawlway’ plans and has even suggested his new highways will ‘clear the air in Ontario’.
The Conservatives have consistently avoided debate and questioning of their policies. Just today, Smith cancelled his participation in the online PROMPT Voting to End Poverty series, scheduled for this evening.
If you are interested in a caring society, connected communities, and a new climate economy, I encourage you to check out the alternative. The Green Party Plan is here: https://gpo.ca/platform/.
