Litter Prevention Program, of Toronto, sent out its 10-question survey today to Kathleen Wynne (LIB), Tim Hudak (PC), Andrea Horwath (NDP) and Mike Schreiner (GRN).
The survey for leaders and political candidates is viewable online at www.litterpreventionprogram.com. A special, independent link was created for members of the general public. They can fill out their answers and, later, compare them with the opinions of the leaders.
Sheila White, survey designer and president of WORDS Media & Communications Inc, founded and champions a litter awareness program whose aim is to lower the overall rate of littering.
“Lasting solutions to littering require leadership. Our survey is a test of true leadership,” said White, a global litter researcher.
Questions seek political opinion on such issues as litter taxes on cigarettes and chewing gum, legislative changes, enforcement and industry-funded recycling.
The leaders have until June 4 to respond. Results will be published in White’s weekly, This Week In “Litterland”, on June 8, 2014 and reported in her group’s second annual progress report in November.
Election Day is June 12.
