Evelyn Dutrisac
Ward 4

Robert Kirwan
Ward 5

“We have a lot to be proud of in the “City of Lakes” and it bothers me when I see the blue-green algae springing up, and I hear about the increased pollution in our lakes and rivers. I am hopeful that during the next four years we can provide more support for the work being done by the Nickel District Conservation Authority. They have such a tremendous responsibility that goes much further than simply warning us about spring flooding.  The Conservation Authority must be given more funding and help to become much more significant in the development and establishment of policies with respect to our natural environment. I also want to provide support to the many small organizations that already exist in the twelve wards, such as the Valley East Trailsmen  and some of the local groups that work directly with the environment. These men and women have so much to provide us when it comes to improving the water quality in the area.

I also want to work with the schools to develop effective education programs for our students, and bring them to places like the Lake Laurentian Conservation Area where we can shape positive attitudes in the area of protecting our natural environment in order to sustain our quality of water and our quality of life in the Greater Sudbury Area.”

René Lapierre
Ward 6

Mike Jakubo
Ward 7

“Water is our most precious environmental resource and we must work as a entire City to protect it.  Ward 7 is home to our City's largest lake in Lake Wanapitei; a lake that also serves as the start of one of our two critical watersheds in the Wahnapitae River, leading to one of two water treatment plants.  Mike strongly believes that conservation of water must be respected in City planning and growth decisions. We are fortunate that our two main watersheds have not been compromised like Ramsay Lake has with its blue-green algae issues and only more education of residents will ensure the full success of any conservation strategy.”
