Intensification: Let's make it happen already!

Regina has failed to meet intensification targets it set for itself over a decade ago. The period of economic and population growth between 2001 and 2014 was a lost opportunity for our community, and we have fallen behind our closest comparison to the north (Saskatoon).

Addictions Crisis

Based on community feedback, including comments I received from residents I spoke with while canvassing in North Central, I co-sponsored this addictions motion with Councillors Bresciani, Mancinelli, and Hawkins.
