Debate on the Environment - South Okanagan - West Kootenay Region
When: Tuesday, October 15th, 2019 at 7 PM – 9 PM
Where: Lakeside Resort & Conference Centre, 21 Lakeshore Dr. W, Penticton, BC
Come listen to the South Okanagan - West Kootenay candidates answer questions about the climate crisis and what their party plans to do to actively tackle climate change. Despite overwhelming public support for the environment, opponents often frame critical issues like climate change and clean water in opposition to economic prosperity. These environmentally-focused debates will demonstrate citizens' support for environmental issues and have a lasting impact on policy. MPs consistently and vividly recall the issues raised at all-candidates' debates, which can translate into policy gains once a government is formed. Come help make this debate a success and generate enough attention to directly impact voter and party priorities.
