In this issue, TEA invites you to join us for our Mayoral Debate and we provide an overview of our election work.
GREEN OR MEAN: MAYORAL DEBATE ON THE ENVIRONMENT
They debate. You listen. You vote.
Toronto’s next Mayor has a big job ahead: investing in our environment to make sure Toronto’s future is green, not mean. On election day, Torontonians will decide who can best do this. TEA wants to help you make an informed decision.
On September 25th, TEA is hosting a mayoral debate on the environment, featuring the top candidates running to be Toronto’s next Mayor. Starting at 7 pm at Trinity St. Paul’s United Church (Bloor Street, west of Spadina), the 90 minute debate will give each candidate an opportunity to show the public why they think they are best suited to build A Greener City for All.
Before releasing tickets to the general public, TEA is giving Council Watch subscribers an exclusive opportunity to reserve free tickets online.
The debate is part of TEA’s ongoing efforts to provide our members with the tools they need to elect a City Council that will invest in the environment. In June, TEA released our Green Action Agenda and our Toronto Council Enviro Report Card. In early August, we sent all registered candidates a survey based on the Green Action Agenda. Before election day, TEA will be releasing a report card that grades how candidates scored on the survey. Stay tuned for the results.
Thanks to NOW Magazine for being the media sponsor of our debate!
How much is a debate worth?
TEA's election work is entirely funded by donations from our members. That's why we need your support to help make this debate happen. Tickets are free to ensure anyone can attend. However, there are still costs of a minimum of $1200 to TEA (room booking, promotion).
