First up, Claire Malcolmson who is the Manager of Campaign Fairness at the Rescue Lake Simcoe Coalition who joins us to talk about their Campaign Fairness initiative. While this may not seem like an obvious connection for a primarily environmental focused organization, Claire connects the dots for us with some startling facts about the effect of industry donations to municipal election campaigns.

Secondly, we are joined by Kristopher Stevens who is the Executive Director of the Ontario Sustainable Energy Association to talk to us generally about renewable energy in Canada, but more specifically about Green Energy Doors Open 2014 which is a showcase of renewable energy projects in communities in Alberta, Ontario and is even now spreading into the USA in partnership with Decentralized Energy Canada. One event that happens tomorrow is the West Toronto Ride for Renewables, and we hope to see you there!
