ASK YOUR CANDIDATES:
What will you do to preserve biodiversity and natural heritage in your ward and across Toronto?
Toronto is not just an artificial island composed of concrete, asphalt, glass and steel. Our city is an integral living part of the earth.
Our natural areas are under constant pressures from inappropriate uses, growing recreational demands, development, invasive species and climate change.
Fortunately, these areas are protected to a significant degree by policies, bylaws and strategies. But protective measures can only make a real difference if they are funded, implemented and enforced.
How You Can Help — Download and print (two-sided if you can) the Candidate’s Questions & Map handout for your ward and give it to candidates running for City Council. You can also use it to ask a question at an all-candidates meeting or at your door. Let candidates know that our natural areas matter!
