The Halton Environmental Network (HEN) is hosting a series of virtual debates Wednesday night between the 2021 Federal Election candidates to find out where they stand on climate issues.

Part of GreenPac’s 100 debates of the Environment, the five community debates in Burlington, Milton, Oakville, Oakville North-Burlington and Halton Hills-Wellington will all take place at the same time.

The virtual debates are being done in collaboration with the Canadian Federation of University Women (CFUW) of Oakville and Georgetown and Sustainable Milton.

“From preserving our green spaces to helping to fight climate change, hear candidates representing major political parties discuss their best policy ideas and answer questions about critical issues about the environment,” HEN said on its website.

Local moderators will handle the debates and local residents will be able to submit their own questions. Candidates will also receive questions from HEN, provided by Green Pac, CFUW Oakville and Georgetown and Sustainable Milton.

HEN will also be launching polls during the live debate.

The virtual non-partisan, all-candidates debate on the environment starts tonight at 8 p.m. and runs to 10 p.m. To register to attend and submit questions, visit https://haltonenvironet.ca/100-debate-on-environment-2021/.
