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.

  1. I think that it’s time to start thinking about mobility hubs that are needed in other parts of the city, parts that have built up despite not being focused on as “growth opportunities”. I feel that the area in and around the intersection of Appleby and Dundas is one of these areas. It’s got tons of traffic, because of the tons of retail that keeps getting built there, but it’s easily the most pedestrian-unfriendly part of the city. Throughout all that space of parking lagoons and extra-wide roadways for cars, very little focus is given to pedestrians, cyclist, and transit. Surely, somewhere in all that space, there could be room for a small transit hub, and more sidewalks.

What's your take?
