Ontario Election 2014 Special

home2014-bg-election-from-greenprosperity.caTomorrow is Voting Day. Green Prosperity reminds us that ‘there are a number of critical environmental issues facing Ontario, from the increasingly costly impacts of climate change to an alarming loss in pollinators, particularly bees, due to pesticide use.  Meanwhile, myths about costs associated with green energy are overshadowing the real cost concern of rebuilding aging nuclear plants and continuing to operate the province’s oldest plant past its planned operational lifespan.  Of course, the push to develop better transit and plan healthier communities is urgent and needs to quickly move from argument to action.
