Candice has been reporting on environmental issues for the past 15 years. She began her career as a weather broadcaster at Canada’s Weather Network. After engrossing herself in climatology she left her job in 2006 to launch the first, local green television series in Canada. As the host, creator and producer of A Greener Toronto, she was responsible for all the content, fundraising and day to day challenges of creating a brand new series.
