Today I went to Gatineau with five of our candidates to see the damage from the tornado and to help out on the ground.
After meeting with a few citizens while observing the damage, we went to the Mont Bleu neighbourhood to pick up pink fibreglass insulation that was all over the roadside.
We had to pick up the insulation as quickly as possible to prevent it from remaining in the environment and to prevent wildlife from using it for their nests. The product is also an irritant to the skin, eyes and throat.
It was the first time I’ve ever cleaned up after a tour but I have a feeling that with climate change it will become more and more frequent. All the more reason to vote green ✅
