The Paris Climate Agreement is a commitment to “holding the increase in the global average temperature to well below 2 °C above pre-industrial levels and to pursue efforts to limit the temperature increase to 1.5 °C above pre-industrial levels,”  to avoid unacceptable risks to humanity.  To reach this goal, carbon emissions must peak by the year by 2020 at the latest – during the next term of Council.

On a scale of 1 – 10, what is your level of concern about climate change, with 10 being the highest?


What will you do to reduce local carbon dioxide emissions and increase Greater Sudbury’s resilience to climate change in our natural and built environment?

Candidate Name
Fern Cormier (incumbent) Increased use of public transit and continued improvements & investments in alternate transportation methods has been and will remain a priority for me.
Denis Ferron The traffic lights need to be better synchronized to allow a steadier flow of traffic. Night time lights to be kept on short change. Drive thru restaurants and long line ups need to be adressed to reduce wait time.
Steve Ripley I have addressed asphalt replacement using recycled plastics to extend it's life expectancy but I want to ensure ALL new road repairs and updates encourage and make it more desireable to walk or cycle within Sudbury and begin a move away from our city's autocentric frame of mind. I would also look at introducing smaller busses on routes with less ridership so we can have higher rotations on those routes
