Liberal Member of Parliament for Vaudreuil-Soulanges Peter Schiefke is one of 28 candidates endorsed by non-partisan and non-profit organization GreenPAC for his work on the environmental front.
GreenPAC, a non-partisan, non-profit group recently announced its list of endorsed ‘Environmental Leaders’ – candidates from Canada’s five major political parties who will put the environment first in Ottawa. This includes the local Liberal candidate for Vaudreuil-Soulanges, Peter Schiefke.
“These are the candidates who have shown they will stand up for our environment – candidates we should look to for strong leadership for the health of our planet,” says GreenPAC’s Executive
Director Sarah Van Exan.
GreenPAC endorsed 35 candidates across the major parties, encouraging environmentally-concerned Canadians to contribute volunteer hours and money to their campaigns. In the 2019 federal election, GreenPAC endorsed 27 candidates, 16 of whom were elected.
“Millions of Canadians of all political stripes care deeply about the environment and climate change. We have the solutions to solve the climate crisis and secure a safe, healthy and just future for all. What we need is leaders in every political party,” says Van Exan.
In the weeks leading up to the announcement, GreenPAC conducted research and sought input and nominations from parties, candidates, environmental organizations and Canadians.
We asked about candidates’ knowledge, experience and leadership in their communities, workplaces and parties for the environment and environmental justice. We also look at win-ability, based on the past three elections and current polls. Endorsements are determined by the GreenPAC Expert Panel, an independent group of provincial and national environmental specialists with no party affiliations. The Panel focuses on track record and does not look at party platforms, campaign commitments or debate performances.
