Kaitlyn is particularly troubled by the inequality that overexposes low-income and First Nations communities to environmental contaminants and pollution from harmful industrial developments. She has worked to advance the human right to a healthy environment through her work on our Chemical Valley Charter Challenge as well as to promote access to safe, drinkable water in Harrietsfield, Nova Scotia. Kaitlyn loves animals, especially the many rescued ones with whom she shares her home.
