The Canadian federal election is this upcoming Monday, October 19th. In part of our 30-day election coverage, we’ve compiled the top environment and election related content that made headlines this week.

An estimated 3.6 million Canadians cast their ballots during advance polling this weekend. That’s up 71 percent from the 2011 Federal Election advance polls result. With only a few days left until the election, take the time to catch up on the platforms of each political party and vote with the environment in mind.

  • The David Suzuki Foundation has released their election environmental cheat sheet on issues such as climate change, pipelines, and transit investment.
  • West Coast Environmental Law launched their “Vote Environment” toolkit on their Environmental Laws Matter campaign website.
  • The Pembina Institute discuss what’s been said in the election and where to go from here.
  • Tzeporah Berman wonders what happened to Canada?
  • Shit Harper Did (SHD) released an hour-long documentary called “Whoa Canada”.
  • CBC  and Vote Compass results conclude that most Canadians feel that the government should take more action on climate change.
