Budget 2018 Ward 3 Town hall
On Tuesday, February 13, come out to my Budget 2018 town hall!
Cannabis legalization has been on the horizon since the election of the Liberal government in 2015. Unfortunately Saskatchewan is lagging behind other provinces when it comes to developing a road map for how to manage this change. There are lessons to be learned from south of the border and we need to take full advantage of the economic potential legalization has to offer.Read more

Parking at the General Hospital
Recently I came across a Regina General Hospital parking study from 2007. There were many recommendations, some of which appear to have been implemented. With one exception: the parkade. At the time, the study indicating a parking shortfall of between 500 and 600 spaces. No amount of street parking configurations would make up for that deficit. And I don't believe my usual prescriptions - public transportation, cycling, car pooling, walking, etc. - would make a serious dent in this requirement. Especially considering the out-of-city clientele and lack of a provincial public transportation system getting people to the hospital.Read more
Motion on homelessness
This important motion on homelessness is being brought forward by the Mayor and will be debated at Council this month. It certainly has my support. Keep in mind that the working group/advisory board referenced in the motion isn't interested in another study on homelessness; instead, the focus is on building the plan and costing a strategy to eliminate ("functional zero") homelessness in Regina. It's the project I'm the most proud of being part of as a Councillor.Read more

Regina: An Access Without Fear City?
I present the Access Without Fear City motion to Council this evening (June 26, 2017). The motion is the result of a collaboration with community members who have been working on this initiative since January, following President Trump's racist travel ban policies. I recommend that people read the motion instead of relying on media coverage.Read more
