The evidenced-based, common sense policies, democratic values and ethical leader are reasons why Sandra identifies with the Green Party.

promoting a building retrofit program to reduce energy use and create new, well-paying jobs
promoting rail transportation to Niagara to reduce energy and take cars off our roads
developing a funding program for municipal water and waste treatment facilities to upgrade and modernize water treatment, sewage treatment, and recycling facilities to make them efficient, safe, sustainable and reduce energy demand
