Election 2019 – The Economy, the Environment, and Historic Places

August 26, 2019 – OTTAWA

The National Trust sent 4 questions to every federal political party, and we invite you to pose them too – at all-candidates’ meetings and on doorstep encounters across Canada.

  1. What will your party do to ensure that the Canadian tax system encourages the re-use and retrofit of existing and older buildings, including heritage buildings – an essential part of any climate strategy
  2. How would you support the efforts of Indigenous Peoples to save and renew their heritage places, and commemorate their contributions to Canada’s history?
  3. How will your government get Canada’s federal house in order to protect nationally significant historic places?
  4. How does your economic development strategy address the needs of Canada’s rural regions and traditional small towns, in a way that protects heritage places and landscapes?
