GreenPAC: voting for the environment

Voting for environmental policy doesn't need to compromise your political preferences

With the federal election just days away, it’s more important than ever to Vote Smart. GreenPAC believes that the future of Canadian politics is up to voters like you. By supporting candidates from all parties, these potential MPs are critical to creating a bright environmental future for all Canadians.

GreenPAC is striving to keep things simple— Canada needs strong political leaders who are driven to take action to protect the environment. To achieve this, the organization has endorsed 18 candidates from all political parties with strong environmental track records . #TheGreen18 were carefully evaluated by an expert panel of diverse individuals noted for their strong academic and professional backgrounds in the environmental sector.

Some of the names to make the list are: Conservative candidate Michael Chong, NDP candidate Richard Cannings, Liberal candidate Kristy Duncan, and Green Party candidate Gord Miller. To find a candidate that best represents your political priorities, you can visit www.GreenPAC.ca to fill out their candidate-matching tool.

Each of GreenPAC’s #TheGreen18 features a candidate profile that outlines their dedication to Canada’s environmental and sustainability issues. You can choose to support your choice aspirant through monetary donations, volunteering your time or by sharing their platform goals.

“What GreenPAC is about is moving beyond having to choose between the lesser of two evils at the ballot box”, says Aaron Freeman, Founder of GreenPAC. “We need to actually focus on an agenda that will change the face of leadership and turn Canada around on its environmental performance.”
