Port Hope All-Candidates Meeting
May 8, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
The Port Hope and District Chamber of Commerce, Northumberland Central Chamber of Commerce, Greater Peterborough Chamber of Commerce, and Northumberland Federation of Agriculture have organized an all-candidates meeting. The meeting will be on May 8th 2018, from 7-9pm, with doors opening at 6. The venue is the Cameco Capitol Arts Centre, 20 Queen St., Port Hope. This event is free, and open to the public. All are welcome!
The event will centre around business and agriculture, two areas on which the Green platform is particularly strong. Our Green Vision for Jobs includes a focus on evidence-based policies that consider the impacts of regulations on small businesses, as well as increased protections for farmland and strategies to help small producers market their products. We know that true sustainability isn’t just about environmental protection (as if that can be separated from other issues). It is also about a sustainable economy to support a healthy and sustainable society. The traditional economy is disappearing: 300,000 manufacturing jobs have vanished in the last decade, the middle class is shrinking as inequality grows, and all of society suffers for it. We’re looking ahead to new industries, but also to new economic models that are more resilient and flexible in our rapidly changing world.
Come out to this free event to see how your Green candidate, Jeff Wheeldon, sizes up against the competition! The candidates from the Liberal Party, PC Party, NDP, and Trilium Party will also attend. Bring a friend, and bring questions for your candidates!
