Four questions to ask political candidates about their plan for nature
Canada goes to the polls for our federal election on October 21, 2019. Now more than ever, we require elected officials who understand the urgent need to protect nature.
As a charity, Nature Canada doesn’t endorse or support any candidate or political party. Instead, we want to see every single candidate talking about nature and the environment. You can help! If you care about wildlife and nature, help us make it a campaign issue.
Engage candidates at the door
In the run-up to the election, candidates will be out at events in your community. They may even knock on your door. This is the perfect opportunity to remind them that you’ll use your vote for nature.
Here’s a few questions to ask:
- Will you advance meaningful protection and recovery of Canada’s species at risk and address species decline?
- Will you support Indigenous-led conservation of protected areas in Canada to advance reconciliation and protect nature?
- Will you support an immediate ban on all neonicotinoid pesticides and support farmers in making the transition to safer alternatives?
- What are three actions you plan on taking to protect our local environment and waterways?
