A coalition of over 38 organizations across Canada including university departments, student organizations and environmental and democracy action groups are calling on the federal parties to state their positions on climate change.
Green Party Leader Elizabeth May, NDP MP Matthew Kellway, and Liberal Party Environment Critic John McKay will attend in person. Minister of Environment, Leona Aglukkaq's attendance is yet to be confirmed.
The new, young voters will be asking how a government by each party would do better at tackling climate change than a government of either of the other parties. It is expected that questions will be fielded on specifics such as carbon pricing, regulations, government procurement policies and other means parties may have explored in their policy discussions. Each party representative will make an initial statement before taking questions by students and attendees.
University campuses across the country will be linked to the live Toronto location via Skype so that attendees can, through local hosts, ask the parties questions. Campuses participating in the Skype discussion include University, McGill University, University of Montreal, University of British Columbia, University of Calgary, and Dalhousie University.
