Louise Leclerc – South Stormont

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?
  • Any citizen that aspires to work for the public should consider climate action to be of utmost importance. In terms of ensuring energy reductions methods are included in the assessment of all municipal activities, I would work to ensure that nearly every aspect of this position would consider climate action before any activity, investment or allocation of funds has been carried out.
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 a healthy and successful downtown/main street?
  • I think the development in these main streets or downtown areas of South Stormont could use expansion and could benefit from assistance from the municipality on aiding in this expansion. Developing areas to attract local businesses certainly can in turn attract residents to shop at local merchant place of business.
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?
  • I believe a tree planting program with a variety of tree species must be implemented in South Stormont. Encouraging residents to plant trees on their own property but also around the perimeters of fields, and areas susceptible to erosion are of utmost importance.
If elected, what waste management initiatives would you support toward increasing waste diversion and what targets would you like to set for your municipality?
  • Awareness is vital in any recycling and waste management initiative. Educating our residents in the value of recycling, on methods to reduce waste and how to increase compost are very important. An important initiative that would promote this awareness is to offer compost bins at low cost or no cost to residents to increase compost and reduce waste.
