LFK Greens/Anita Payne campaign -- Issues page

Next Ontario election - June 7, 2018 - our candidate is Anita Payne (see link below)

Local issues and where we stand

We canvassed our local members to learn more what their issues are, and here are the unedited responses.
The survey questions were based on those categories used by the Green Party of Ontario.
Full disclosure - while the number of responses was insufficient for us to claim these answers are statistically representative, they do perhaps reflect what is is on members' minds as we approach the election in June.

Other specific issues you'd like to see addressed.
Indigenous issues, improved municipal planning and construction to build sustainable, healthy, walkable, nature inspired communities. Also a cultural shift away from consumption of stuff.
Doing away with the Separate School system and merging it with the Public School system. so that Ontario has only one French school system, and one English school system, both non-religious.
The banning of pesticides which are poisoning our waters, killing biodiversity of all kinds including human health. This is not a topic addressed above so I checked Defend Ontario's natural heritage. This is important too as is climate change,
Electoral system needs to be cleared of fraud and dirty politics
Mental Health and Drug addiction. Control development and preserve critical habitat by providing the necessary government funds to buy land for nature protection. Prison reform.
Privatization of Ontario Hydro - It will be costly to return it common ownership i.e. the province
Preparing for an aging society
Income inequality

Anything else to add?
We need a comprehensive plan to address the proliferation of plastic that is polluting the water and land. Provinces Need to push the federal government to move forward rapidly to address the problem at a global level.
municipal politics needs to be free of corruption
Health care, dementia, taking care of our people
Hydro, hydro, hydro!
