Drug abuse has had a devastating effect on our community. Unfortunately, we’ve suffered from a deep lack of leadership on this issue across all levels of government. I will take the lead in ensuring a compassionate but reasonable approach to the problem, while prioritizing the safety and security of all our residents.

My plan:

  • Eliminate open-air drug use
  • New safety and cleanliness measures to help protect residents experiencing disorder adjacent to SIS sites
  • Enhance and streamline the path to recovery: work with partners to deliver better access to counselling and substance abuse help
  • Support for safe injection. I believe they are part of the solution, preventing overdoses and saving lives while reducing the burden on emergency services. They also help steer users toward rehabilitation services: the Shepherds of Good Hope site for example is helping 30 to 40 people a month access drug rehabilitation

There’s a lot at stake this election. The choice we make on October 22 will determine our future. Join us. Together, we will bring change to City Hall. Sign up to receive updates, volunteer or donate today.
