Community-Based Renewable Energy Key Part of Dr. David Robinson’s Jobs Plan for Sudbury

Share:

(SUDBURY): Green Party candidate Dr. David Robinson wants to create local jobs harnessing renewable energy. One leg of Robinson’s jobs plan is to transform Sudbury into a centre for mining excellence by fostering local innovation in the mining supply and renewable energy sectors. 
“Sudbury should be a world leader in sustainable mining research and innovation,” says Robinson. “We start by promoting locally-initiated community energy projects.”
 
“Local energy projects run by local communities create local jobs,” says Robinson. “Decentralized power and local control are the wave of the future.”
 
Robinson’s plan is for Sudbury to capitalize on local energy projects to create jobs and save money. For years the Green Party has lead the charge for more investment in community energy. 
 
“OPG is an unwieldy monster,” says Robinson. “Liberals, Conservatives and the NDP have all failed to tame it. I’m going to push for more community power projects. Sudbury can be a leader on this issue.”
 
“I know David Robinson will be a fierce advocate for Sudbury to create jobs and generate economic benefits through community power projects,” says Green Party of Ontario leader Mike Schreiner. “Unlike the Liberals, our green energy plan puts communities before corporations.”
 
David Robinson has a proven track record in economic development.  Robinson understands better than any candidate in this by-election that Sudbury has an opportunity to expand our economic prosperity if local decision-making is prioritized by senior levels of government.
 
“Renewable energy is already the fastest growing economic sector in the world,” says Robinson.  “With the Ring of Fire opening up opportunities for Ontario to showcase sustainable mining practices on a global stage, it’s clear that clean, safe renewable energy is going to be a huge part of Sudbury’s mining future.”
 
Dr. David Robinson and the Green Party are on a mission to bring honesty, integrity and smart policy to Queen’s Park.
