Ontario Election Madness

Lana Goldberg is our first guest this week who joins us to talk about line 9, and climate change in general as an election issue in this upcoming Ontario provincial election. Lana has a history of volunteering with a variety of tar sands and climate related issues, most recently focusing on working with local citizens who have become activated around the highly controversial line 9 reversal project that runs through southern Ontario.

Our second guest this week is Kris Stevens, Executive Director of the Ontario Renewable Energy Association who throws his two cents in on the impending Ontario elections with his thoughts on the implications for the world-famous Ontario Green Energy Act, and the investment and clean jobs it provides for the province both now and into the future.

Lastly, our own Kevin Farmer wraps up the show with a rundown of the various environmental content (or lack-there-of) of the four major Ontario political parties.
