 Reinvigorating the Region

  • Better housing - everyone should have a warm dry home. The Green Party would give all homes free insulation so everyone could save money on their energy bills. 
  • Better street lighting - everyone should feel safe when walking home in the dark. Dark streets and alleyways make many people uncomfortable. The Green Party would install solar-powered street lighting where needed.
  • More recycling - doorstep recycling should be made easier, with more materials collected.
