Candidate namequestion_6
Fern Cormier (incumbent) It will be important to "hit the ground running" with the results of the watershed study. There will be recommendations that will have to be financed and implemented in order to protect our waterways.
Denis Ferron I was walking along junction creek and was saddened by all the garbage along the banks and in damned areas, this has to be cleaned up and a solution to prevent all the garbage entering waterways. Find a something other than salt in winter time that finds it's way to our watershed and have more filtering resevoir catch basins.
Steve Ripley I would work with local groups as well as seek out ideas to upgrade and improve infrastructure and sewer systems as they are being repaired and look for ways to mitigate or eliminate toxic road salts etc. that are used on our roadways during the winter months. I would also enact and enforce a bylaw requiring field beds,gas stations or any other form of sub terrainian waste management to be anually inspected so that the possibility of contamination is greatly reduced or eliminated.
