Why I'm Running
Let’s keep this simple.
We have some big things that need to be built. And we have some big challenges to overcome. That’s why I’m running for mayor – to build on the good work of the current mayor and council.
I’ve done it before. Clearing roadblocks for the construction of Raven’s Keep Transition Housing and Acropolis Manor. Building a Canada-wide campaign that attracted tens of millions into the building of Northland Cruise Terminal and Fairview Container Terminal. I’ve learned many lessons since those days. I’m better equipped than ever.
Every council needs to ensure that decision-making is fair, transparent and puts people first. City services must be delivered efficiently. Taxpayers must be protected from runaway spending. Political power must be deployed to build up services like healthcare and childcare.
I’ll do those things.
Reliable Water Supply
Building a water filtration plant and replacing the water distribution system will have a domino effect. We can finally begin rebuilding roads. Which means we can separate storm and sanitary sewers for wastewater treatment. And we can resume community-owned hydro-electric generation.
Housing For Seniors
Its the quickest way to open housing for everyone! Seniors occupy more than 10% of our housing, much of it no longer fitting. New construction will improve the city center, give seniors (and others) the homes they need, and instantly unlock the housing supply. It’s the right thing to do, and a triple win!
Rebuilt City Centre
The 2030 Plan is a blueprint for a live/work/play city center. Getting started is the key to growth. We will assemble the project teams required to begin reconstructing our city center.
