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
Tay Butt More electric cars and buses in Sudbury, and support for emission test for automobiles.
Leo Frappier - withdrawn
Joscelyne Landry-Altmann (incumbent) In the past terms I have advocated for the LIDs (low impact development )concept integration in our site plans -better development .both municipally and privately.Responsible stormwater management .Protect our lakes and implement an asset management policy for our lakes..and initiated the hiring of an energy manager at TDS. -Promote transit use,safer and accessible pedestrian sidewalks and trails. Have advocated for better winter maintenance on our sidewalks-2106 budget increase,cleared bus stops..continue to advocate for transit hubs(express buses ) transit masterplan is underway .. safer cycling lanes ,Ensure that the Junction Creek study's recommendations are implemented for better drainage and flood control mitigation in the Flour Mill area. -Initiated the preventative plumbing subsidy -now called the RIISP-which helps homeowners control flooding/back ups in their homes,but also disconnects eaves from stormwater sewers. -Initiated a motion/ammendment to OP, in which outdoor hydronic heaters are restricted in urban and high population density zones,therefore improving the air quality in densely populated areas.
Shawn Ouimet I would like to see our city add more bike routes as well a redesigned bus route along with changing the toe of transit we have currently, I have noticed other city test and or implement transit using different fuel sources and/ or electric buses which will reduce the city's carbon foot print. I believe we should be testing - using the best fuel sources that will work in our northern climates.
