Andrew Davies is the Executive Director of the No. 9 Contemporary Art & the Environment which provides inspiration, leadership and logistics for environmental art projects, for both students and public installations around Toronto.

For the rest of the show, Stefan and Daryn discuss a variety of recent news stories, the ongoing election and start preparing for our upcoming interviews and stories on the critical, and potentially last chance for global action on climate change: COP 21 in Paris.

Some Important links mentioned on the show:

votetogether.ca – Leadnow is organizing strategic voting to ensure that parties (any of them) that are dealing with reality are elected. This isn’t about partisanship, it’s about science and demonstrable reality.

GreenPAC.ca – Founder Aaron Freeman was on the show a few weeks ago talking about his initiative, you can listen to that episode here. GreenPAC is based on a survey, to personalize a voters preferences (including, but not limited to environmental issues) and help advise you on which candidate (not party) in your riding has the best record on the issues you tell them you care about.
