As part of the lead up to the provincial election on April 23, a coalition of 20 Island organizations involved in a range of environmental and conservation issues on PEI is hosting an all-party leaders’ forum on environmental issues on Monday, April 8th at 7 pm, in MacDougall Hall at UPEI.
This will be an important opportunity for the leaders of our political parties to clearly articulate their positions on a variety of key environmental issues. It is a particularly challenging time for the health of the Island environment. In addition to the longstanding issues associated with the quality of our soil, water and air, we now also face the urgency of climate change.
Dr Carolyn Peach-Brown, Chair of Environmental Studies at UPEI will moderate the forum. Leaders will respond to questions that have been prepared by the hosting organizations. There will also be time for questions from the audience.
