A Youth Town Hall on Municipal Election Issues in York Region

With a municipal election on the horizon, we’re looking for a shake-up!

It’s not new information that the voices of young people are frequently overlooked in the planning of our communities, even when our futures are on the table. While many of us are working hard at cultivating awareness, building coalitions, and designing solutions in our neighborhoods, we’d like our municipal leaders to hear our perspectives, too.

As young people of York Region, we are concerned about affordable housing and food issues, including urban sprawl’s impact on agriculture and the impact of affordable housing on food security.

Between skyrocketing food and housing prices, we need to plan for equitable housing and food futures to truly resist the many crises of unaffordability. And we need our electoral candidates to hear us before it’s too late to take action.
