Loyalist-Cataraqui District and the City of Kingston face challenges and opportunities that people have been talking to me about at the doors:
Traffic and parking issues, especially near schools.
Inflation is on the rise. People need help with housing and childcare as costs increase. Our City must choose impactful spending priorities and be fiscally responsible. We cannot afford more debt with interest rates climbing.
Doctor and nursing shortages are an urgent issue the City can address, recruiting more to this amazing community.
Increasing access to parks and outdoor activities is affordable and has a huge impact on quality of life.
Well paid, green jobs for the new economy. Kingston can do more to support and attract innovative entrepreneurs.
Climate change and sustainability – we must reduce our dependence on fossil fuels across sectors; protect local farmland, forests and waters for the generations to come.
