Throughout the City election campaign, I will be putting forth opinions, viewpoints and points of action I support – on key issues in our City.
The role of a Councillor is to best represent ward issues AND City issues. I work very closely with residents in the Waverley West ward to listen to and hear their concerns. I work with Councillor colleagues and residents from all over our great city to seek solutions to challenges we face. And I study and research best practices throughout the world – all in an effort to improve the quality of life for everyone living in Winnipeg.
Without a doubt, Winnipeg has been hit very hard by COVID-19 which has amplified many issues – many complex issues. Every individual and level of government is going to have to work together, like never before – to recover from the impacts of COVID -19 and to improve the quality of life for everyone. We are in incredibly challenging times. I welcome any comments or feedback on the below listed issues:

Governance is certainly not the most exciting topic for anyone, BUT the way a city is governed impacts every single decision made and every single dollar spent. A good governance model ensures fair and equal representation and ensures all residents’ voices are heard....read more
