Residents deserve respect. 

Many who live in our mature communities have invested decades of their lives maintaining properties, new families have moved in and renovated homes, others have contributed in countless small ways to the vibrancy of neighbourhoods through community league development, little libraries, or creating benches for their boulevard and sidewalk. We deserve a strong voice at City Hall to represent our communities with a balanced approach to renewal and development. Walking through our mature communities I have seen where infill has been implemented respectfully, and I have seen where it has negatively impacted neighbours fences, skylines, and even the foundations of their homes. City Council needs to listen, protect the homeowners and hold developers to full account for impacting existing homeowners.

Encouraging the positive benefits of development can be done, but it is your elected representative’s job to ensure rules are in place and adhered to by developers.
