LPC • ON • Burlington
Karina Gould (Liberal, Burlington) has been an MP since 2015, relentlessly advocating for climate change and environmental protection since then. Her conservation efforts have included her work on exploring the development of more national parks and defence of the Greenbelt — having been a vocal opponent of the proposed highway that would cut through this ecologically vital area. She has been a strong advocate for the Cootes to Escarpment EcoPark, which works to protect, restore, and connect over 9,000 acres of natural lands in Burlington and around Hamilton. Gould has helped secure various environmental commitments, including the doubling of international climate financing as Minister of International Development, and support for wetlands rehabilitation programs in her riding.
