Climate change is the focus for an all candidate virtual event

The election that few wanted does need attention – there are issues to be discerned.

The Halton Environment Network (HEN) and the Chamber of Commerce are hosting debates.

HEN is part of a North American event – for us in the Region of Halton the focus is on the federal election and a drill down into what the candidates have to say about climate change and the environment.

A panel has been created for each of the constituencies in the Region.

For the Burlington people that includes the constituencies of Burlington, Oakville North Burlington and Milton – which includes the northern part of Burlington.

There are 120 communities across the country holding similar events in every constituency – which is quite an undertaking.

There is a youth group involved with different moderators for each constituency – actually there are two moderators for each constituency.

There are two questions that will be asked at each event; then there is a rapid fire set of questions followed up by questions from the audience.

The two core questions will be asked at all of the 120 communities taking part.

There will be live polls taking place during the two hour event

The only regrettable part of all this is that is takes place at the same time as the leaders debate.

The upside is that HEN will be posting their debates to the HEN YouTube page on their web site.

So you can go back at any time and listen to what the candidates in your riding have to say.

You can check out their web site for the details and register.

Please join Halton Environmental Network (HEN), CFUW Oakville, Sustainable Milton and CFUW Georgetown on Wednesday September 8th, 2021 at 8 pm for the Virtual Debates on the Environment.
