If you haven’t seen them yet, you will soon! Your local federal election candidates will be coming to your door, calling you at home or standing at an intersection, asking for your vote on October 19th. Why not ask them what they’re prepared to do for nature?
90% of Canada’s land and 100% of our ocean are publicly owned. That means that most of our magnificent wilderness is in the hands of our politicians.
What action will your candidates take to protect our great outdoor spaces that cleanse the air we breathe, the water we drink and moderate our climate?
CPAWS has prepared three simple questions you can ask your candidates, and some quick facts on what the federal government can do to protect our precious wild spaces. Read our vote for nature guide.
Let’s be sure enough of us say we’re “voting for nature” to make a difference!
Yours in conservation,
National Executive Director
