Today, All-Candidates Environment Debates no Canadian voter should miss

Thursday, October 3rd 2019 8:33:46am

Attention:  Assignment and political editors and other journalists

(October 3, 2019) - In roughly a third of Canada’s federal ridings, a locally organized environment focused debate will be held today. Coordinated by GreenPAC under the banner of 100 Debates on the Environment, voters will hear directly from candidates invited to express their views about environmental issues.

These non-partisan debates provide a platform to allow the best environmental policy ideas to come forward and compete for voter support.

The location and contact information for each community debate can be found at www.100debates.ca/debates. You can also watch the debate online through each riding's Facebook event.


For more information or interview requests, including with local organizers, please contact: Kate Belmore, 647-457-3075, k.belmore@greenpac.ca
