Provincial Election 2022

Vote for action on climate, nature, and a just, sustainable future for this pivotal election.

BurlingtonGreen, the BG Youth Network, and the Burlington Community Climate Action Hub have compiled a variety of resources to help you learn about local candidates and have your valued voice shared. Check them out below!

To help inform your vote, we’ll be asking local candidates the following 4 questions and sharing their responses to help inform your important vote:

  1. Given that Halton already has 22 quarry operations,  and the aggregate industry has negative impacts on people, air, water, wetlands, woodlands and wildlife, will you champion a moratorium, a temporary pause, on all new gravel mining approvals, if you are elected?

  2. If elected, will you commit to opposing the unnecessary, costly proposed highway 413, and champion smart planning for healthy, equitable, low carbon communities instead of urban sprawl?

  3. If elected will you commit to improving the Extended Producer Responsibility system by adding the Industrial, Commercial and Institutional sector, setting and enforcing higher recycling targets for plastic packaging and establishing a deposit on beverage containers? Will you also reject efforts to burn ‘plastic -to-fuel” and commit to banning organics from landfills?

  4. How would you ensure that Ontario has enough clean electricity to support all sectors of the economy and achieve Net-Zero by 2050 without reverting to running gas plants non-stop by 2030 to meet electricity demands, as projected by the Independent Electricity System Operator (IESO)? Additionally, how will your party support municipalities to electrify their transit fleet?

Note: our questions will be sent to all candidates with available online contact information as of May 13, 2022

Let all party candidates (and your neighbours) know the issues that matter most to you. Repurpose materials around your home, and be creative to create a lawn sign or choose one of our downloadable pdf signs below to print and post on your door, window, or mailbox.
