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
Mike Jakubo (incumbent) Only be working together will we be able to realize true change. The City can continue to invest in public transit and active transportation, even supporting the use of public transit by employees, but needs the continued buy-in from the business community as well.
Frank Mazzuca Jr.
Deborah Swyer-Burke I think Sudbury needs to keep participating in the Green Projects of tree planting, Definitely community gardens, public transportation and bike paths, keep our water ways, lakes, rivers and streams healthy, more hiking and outdoor activities for the younger generations coming up behind us. Reduce, Reuse and Recycle.
