Environmental Group of the Week: The Bay Area Restoration Council (BARC) is a registered charity that assesses and promotes clean-up projects in Hamilton Harbour and its watershed. BARC works with all levels of government and other non-profit groups, collaborating on remedial projects.
BARC has two great community events coming up in the next month:
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.
