Litter Prevention Program, of Toronto, circulated its 8-question survey to the five leading hopefuls at an all-candidates debate in Scarborough on Tuesday night.
All candidates for Mayor of Toronto and the public can view and answer the questionnaire at www.litterpreventionprogram.com.
Sheila White, survey designer and a recognized champion of litter awareness, says her group’s aim is “to keep a conversation about littering near the top of the pile.”
“Lasting solutions to littering require leadership. We need to know where the new mayor will stand,” said White, a global litter researcher and publisher of the Sunday online magazine, This Week In “Litterland”.
Questions seek political opinion on issues such as litter campaigns, legislative changes, enforcement and industry-funded recycling. Candidates are also asked to disclose whether they have ever littered either accidentally or on purpose, modeled after a government promotion that’s currently underway across Australia right now.
Responses will be published prior to the Oct. 27 election, White said.
