Your Federal Candidates Forum
In the coming weeks, we are offering all federal election candidates across Canada a forum to discuss their views and policies on the impacts of consumption in Canada and around the world. While Canadians represent around 0.5 per cent of the world’s population and 1.5 per cent of emissions, we think it’s a little unfair to put the weight of the world on Canada.
Of course, we support improving our environmental performance. That is the point of Consume This.
What we don’t believe in is punishing our industries and working Canadians with policies that don’t consider individual consumption and the fact that billions of individuals around the globe benefit from Canadian products and ingenuity.
Let’s ask some tough questions and make sure our leaders are on Canada’s side.
Consume This will be asking those questions of federal election candidates and we’ll be sharing their replies – watch this space for updates.
