What can we do to grow Moose Jaw in both population and the economy while being world leaders in environmental-sustainability?

In addition to supporting locally owned small businesses, we need to push for the creation of green jobs by taking measures on City Council that will attract energy conservation and renewable energy industry to Moose Jaw. We can set an example for the rest of the province by meeting our energy needs through renewable energy sources and fully utilizing energy conservation methods. Energy retrofitting and the installation of decentralized renewable energy, such as solar panels, must be done at the local level, meaning the creation of many new jobs. People go where the jobs are, and students will also come to Moose Jaw seeking training opportunities in Saskatchewan’s first potential off grid city. As our population grows, City Council needs to promote an end to urban sprawl and take measures to rebuild core neighbourhoods instead.

On October 28th, vote for sustainable solutions to Moose Jaw's failing economy. Elect Larissa Shasko as Councillor.
