Yesterday, we welcomed three federal candidates (Barrington Walker, Mark Gerretsen, and Candice Christmas) for Kingston and the Islands to discuss and answer questions on sustainability. Organized by SustainabilityAction, topics included social and environmental justice, indigenous reconciliation, commitment to climate action, investing in public transit and green technologies, banning single-use plastics, regionalizing food systems, and more!
