I am committed ..... to ending homelessness in Edmonton.
I believe ..... everyone is responsible for ending homelessness and the solution should be a “city wide response.”
I will tackle this issue ..... by meaningfully engaging communities to deal with the fear and anxiety that are part of the ‘not in my backyard’ response to housing the homeless.
I am committed ..... to creating a community where businesses thrive.
I believe ..... the entrepreneur spirit is integral to a thriving community.
I will tackle this issue .....by creating an environment supportive of new businesses.
I am committed ..... to ensuring that Ward 7 will be at the table when the future of Northlands is discussed.
I believe ..... what happens to Northlands will have an impact on the surrounding neighbourhoods surrounding Northlands.
I will tackle this issue ..... by continuing to engage with the neighbourhoods to ensure the needs of the community are not forgotten.
I am committed ..... to seeing the needs of a mature neighbourhood are addressed.
I believe ..... mature neighbourhoods carry the history of Edmonton and therefore needs to be treated with respect.
I will tackle this issue ..... by implementing the recommendations of the Elevate Report created by the City of Edmonton.
Violence Against Women
I am committed to ..... ending violence against women.
I believe ..... men who perpetrate violence need to be invited into the process of finding a solution without shaming them.
I will tackle this issue ..... by creating opportunities to involve men and having men’s sharing circles on ending violence against women.
“When we know better we do better”
I am committed ..... to continually learning from the Indigenous community.
I believe ..... when we know better we will do better.
How I will tackle this issue .....by working to ensure the City of Edmonton continues to respond to the rights of Indigenous peoples.
