These maps and questions were created for the 2018 Toronto municipal election. The maps have not changed and are the same for Municipal and Provincial wards/ridings. The questions for candidates are under development for 2022. These files are to be used as models at this time for any organization that finds them useful. See the Advocacy page for the many organization working towards making nature an important issue in upcoming elections.
ASK YOUR CANDIDATES:
What will you do to preserve biodiversity and natural heritage in your Provincial and Municipal wards 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.
Ontario Nature has a campaign called Vote for Nature for the 2022 Provincial Election. Enter your name and postal code and a letter will be sent to the appropriate recipients. Here are the responses to their questions.
Green Prosperity has Questions and Answers from Provincial candidates.
How You Can Help — Download and print (two-sided if you can) the applicable Candidate’s Questions & Map handout 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 heritage matters!
