Ecology Ottawa Survey Response

Dear Ecology Ottawa,

Thank you for providing me with your questions about the environment.

I do not believe that the yes/no questionnaire provides candidates or the general public the opportunity to engage in a meaningful dialogue on something as complex as environmental sustainability policies.

The City’s best environmental initiatives have been the result of city-wide efforts to engage residents and have been involved complex negotiations between all levels of government.

I am pleased to note that Ecology Ottawa recognizes that much has been accomplished in Ottawa over the course of the last eight years.

In this spirit, I am pleased to provide you with a high level overview of the key environmental accomplishments of the last two mandates.

I am committed to continue to working with all residents, community organizations, Council, the Province of Ontario and the Government of Canada to support policies and initiatives that benefit Ottawa residents and foster environmental sustainability, in a fiscally responsible way.

Further, I will be releasing key elements of my platform in early September and I look forward to sharing my thoughts on how to maintain our environmental leadership into the next term of Council.

Jim Watson, Mayor
City of Ottawa
