Introducing myself

My name is Karleigh Csordas and I am honoured and excited to be representing the Green Party in the Brantford-Brant riding!

The Green Party is ready to lead a new path towards a better, and brighter future. An important value I enjoy upholding, is being an active member in our community. I am the co-chair of Environmental & Sustainability Policy Advisory Committee and chair of the Green Team Brantford. I am willing to put in the work to see the positive changes and support others in their initiatives to do the same. I hope through our campaign together we can connect on changes with real solutions that the Green Party has to offer.

Listening to our community

Listening

As a young person, I’m really listening to our community and the changes people want to see.

I have the energy and knowledge to work through our complex provincial issues. I will always speak the truth, communicate about matters being worked on, and provide honest work to the community. The Green Party is putting forward the effort to do politics differently. We need to set a model to support one another.

I am ready to use my voice on issues such as disability and benefits not getting the support they need, long term care residents who deserve enough staff to provide quality care and a funding commitment to delivering it, improving education, making housing more affordable, and supporting small businesses as the backbone of our economy.

Affordable home ownership

Affordable Housing (a toy house made of small wooden blocks on a grassy lawn)Getting into home ownership is next to impossible for my generation, including here in Brantford-Brant.

And we are facing the increasing cost and impacts of the climate crisis. Student loans. Global economic uncertainty. Add it all up and we are also facing a mental health crisis. Greens see how housing affordability issues and mental health go hand in hand. A green government will chart a path forward to solve the housing crisis in Ontario without paving over precious farmland and green space. We need mixed diverse neighbourhoods, with townhomes, laneway suites coops and yes even tiny homes, all of which will make home ownership more accessible, livable and affordable. We need a GLI (Guaranteed Livable Income), we must dismantle systemic racism. We must start thinking about jobs and teaching mental health, child care and the arts as low carbon jobs. Because they are. We must invest in protecting nature, creating jobs in global green economy, outdoor education and sustainable local food production. This is how we are going to fix the housing affordability crisis and tackle mental health.

Livable communities!

The Green Party is all about livable, affordable & connected communities where we can live, work & play.

BL in a Brantford superhero! She inspires me daily by diverting waste headed towards landfill and feeding so many bellies with her love for our community. I do not have a caption space long enough to share all BL does. Once you meet her you won’t hesitate to sign up to volunteer- shes that awesome! I enjoy connecting on this mission as a volunteer of BL’s!

Bl has a Little Free Pantry she started where you can can give what you can, take what you can process. It is used frequently and ran by many hands! Check out @brantfordperiodpopup too! There are micro pantries of menstrual products for those in need in the little free food pantries plus more locations. It is also a give what you can take what you can. BL’s food pantries have expanded to three locations in Brantford! She also connects for a local food truck that is brought to various neighbourhoods in Brantford-Brant. Just bring your bags and this girl is feeding the community. No one is the judge of your pantry – please, don’t go hungry. Connect on pantry locations and food trucks.

No she can’t run for politics for another few years 😂 but I hope to inspire BL by bringing her with me to meet and canvas with @mikeschreinergpo !! Vote for who you believe in, I just hope to continue to inspire others to get involved in politics and the community 🥰 BL inspires me!

The Green Party will take action on the climate crisis

Illustration of the earth with a clock face over top, reading 8:30.How much longer will it take for government to take action on the climate crisis?

The climate crisis affects everyone but it also its us right here in Brantford. I was proud to champion the Declaration of a Climate Emergency and Imperative Action here in Brantford. As a result of that initiative, the City of Brantford has developed a really good climate action plan.

The next phase is to get more people involved in climate action – there’s so much we can do at home that may seem small, but when taken collectively, make a big difference! And of course, we have to hold Brantford Council to keeping its commitments and meeting its targets.
