World Changing Conversations – A Sudbury by-election event

Sudbury, ON: Six candidates in Sudbury’s provincial by-election shared their thoughts about the climate crisis and which carbon pricing policy they would champion at Queen's Park. This was not a debate but a 10 minute one-on-one conversation with a moderator, Gerry Labelle. 

· Suzanne Shawbonquit (NDP)  
· Jean Raymond Audet – (People's Political Party) –  

VIDEO answer and discussion with former GPC candidate Fred Twilley
· David Robinson (Green Party) – sent a video because he was at THE carbon pricing event in Toronto

· Glenn Thibeault – Sent a written answer which were read aloud and spoke with us afterwards
· Paula Peroni (Conservative) – could not attend but Gerry spoke with her and shared thoughts
· Andrew Olivier  (Independent) – ill and will send answers later

In the last ten minutes of the first part of the evening, the audience asked questions and shared thoughts on carbon pricing. 

Background information:
The government of Ontario will soon announce its carbon pricing policy and then the debate will begin at Queen’s Park between MPPs about which policy is best. Carbon pricing has world-changing implications and if done right, a carbon price could unleash the tremendous potential Ontario has to become global leaders in the clean tech industry.
