For #elxn44 we 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 looked at winnability, 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.
