Candidates Respond

On October 22nd, 2018 residents across Ontario will be casting their vote for their municipal councils.  At Transition Cornwal+, we are interested in learning more about the candidates who are running for municipal council in the City of Cornwall and across the 6 municipalities of the Counties of Stormont, Dundas and Glengarry.  We want to learn about where candidates stand on issues related sustainability and community vibrancy but more importantly, what their visions are and what actions they would take if elected.

We asked candidates these 4 important questions:

  1. If elected, would you make climate action a priority, and if so, how would you ensure that state-of-the art-energy reduction methods are included in the assessment of all municipal activities, spending and investments – both capital and on-going management?
  2. Do you think your main street/downtown is successful – why or why not?  If elected, what specific actions, changes and improvements would you make to ensure it is healthy and successful?
  3. If elected, how would you go about ensuring the replacement of tree cover lost in your municipality as a result of the Emerald Ash Borer?
  4. If elected, what waste management initiatives would you support toward increasing waste diversion and what targets would you like to set for your municipality?

Over the next few weeks leading up to the election, we will be updating this page regularly as we receive responses.  Click on your municipality to find out where your candidates stand:
