Ask the Councillor

Resident L.N. asks: I am wondering if you have ever had any complaints about a smell in Downtown Burlington? I have, on occasion, noticed a smell similar to burning plastic. I noticed it quite strong today and have also occasionally noticed it in the early mornings.

Response: The Ministry of the Environment and Climate Change (MOECC) is the lead agency when investigating outdoor odour complaints. Residents should call the Burlington office at 905-319-3847.

I was inspired to seek public office because I believe, like so many of you, “I can do something about that” on the issues we face. As councilor, my role is to take a stand on what’s best for residents and go to bat for it. Pushback is inevitable from those who don’t have the community’s interests at heart. I will stand with you and for you, to achieve the best interests of our city, without caving to unacceptable compromise in the name of consensus.

What's your take?
