"As Mayor, Jeff Huska will work in collaboration with the Sudbury and District Health Unit and our Vale Living with Lakes Center to further understand some of the main causes of Blue-Green Algae and more specifically what we can do to prevent it from destroying all of our lakes. Huska would be willing to institute bylaws that would prolong the longevity of our lakes if protecting our water systems means that there needs to be stronger municipal intervention."

Dan Melanson

“As Mayor, Melanson will propose that immediate protective measures and continued research into future measures that protect Ramsey Lake and the watershed be fully funded”
“As part of the Melanson infrastructure renewal and municipal bond strategy, funding will be available to tackle these pressing infrastructure needs.”

“Those citizens who live in the suburban and rural areas of Greater Sudbury who are not serviced by the sanitary sewer system have the added responsibility of ensuring the proper operation of their septic systems. It is in everyone's best interest to ensure these septic systems are functioning properly and not leaking into our waterways. To this end Melanson proposes mandatory, periodic inspection and recertification of residential septic systems.”
