Council elections are scheduled for Saturday, 4th September 2021. Prepoll voting opens on 23rd August. Voting is compulsory.
Help us re-elect Greens councillor Charles Jago.
Here are the Greens views on the key election issues for Canada Bay Council:
The Greens are the only party consistently challenging the large-scale overdevelopment being created by the NSW Government, which favours big developers’ high-rise towers and profits above community needs.
Charles Jago has initiated council policies to reduce emissions, increase renewables, and treat climate change as an emergency.
The Greens are leading the push in local government for substantially more effective policies to reduce carbon emissions and prepare councils to prevent and mitigate catastrophic climate change with better policies in planning, development and council operations.
A new local public high school:
Canada Bay LGA needs a new local public high school. One new high school in Wentworth Point will not be enough.
Increase affordable housing
With the government forcing additional dwellings on Canada Bay LGA, this is the time to ensure a mix of additional affordable housing.

Our full ticket is as follows:
Campaign launch – postponed
We have postponed the Canada Bay Greens campaign launch BBQ (previously set for Saturday 3 July) due to COVID.
When we hold the event, we will have outspoken MP Jamie Parker speaking about key issues for all inner west residents in this election. Charles will also speak on the key issues in Canada Bay, especially overdevelopment.
At that time, you can hear about the issues, and meet the team candidates and other volunteers in the campaign. The BBQ will be our fundraiser for this campaign. All food will be provided but please bring your own alcohol.
Please register for this COVID-safe event.
