Vote for a GREENER BURLINGTON

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

We can’t afford delays – we need a Council of climate and environmental champions during a time when climate and environmental ACTION is critical.

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. Together we can speak up and vote for leaders at city hall that will champion a healthier, more sustainable, equitable, liveable today and tomorrow.

To help inform your vote, we’re asking local candidates important questions about climate change and the environment. We will be posting their responses on this page at the beginning of October.

Video Question: Accelerating Climate Change is eroding the health of our environment, and mitigation of its impacts must be a central part of all government decision-making, spending and regulating. What do you believe to be the greatest opportunity in Burlington to mitigate climate change locally ? And if you’re  elected, what specific actions will you champion and prioritize the necessary budget funds for, in order  to accelerate Burlington’s Climate Action Plan?

Let all 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.
