Municipalities are critical players in all seven of the communities in which we operate. In fact when we select a member, that is to say, when we receive applications from groups like EnviroCentre in Ottawa or reThink Green in Sudbury, one of the criteria is how supportive the municipality is. What kind of climate change action plan do they have? What amount of funding have they put in?
We see often that municipal leadership can very much spur on the private sector to be an active player. To be fair, across the country on sustainability so much of the leadership we are seeing has been driven at the local level. We want to leverage that and build off of that, and in turn, that's where I bring it to you to encourage stronger federal support to match what we're seeing at the local level.
