Zoom conversations with Councillor Waye Mason about inner city revitalization on December 10th, 12 PM.
In the spring of 2022, I joined fellow councillors and the Mayor in Halifax, Nova Scotia to explore opportunities for downtown and inner city revitalization. There's a lot we can learn about Halifax's approach to dealing with public investments in infrastructure, recreation, and cultural amenities. Like Regina, Halifax struggles with poverty, homelessness, and a perception that inner city streets are unsafe. In this live Zoom session, I speak with Councillor Waye Mason about how that municipality tackled the same issues that Regina is addressing right now.
Waye Mason is a community leader, entrepreneur, educator and Halifax Regional Councillor. Prior to his election as Councillor, Waye has grown businesses, led member organizations and developed the arts and culture sector in Nova Scotia for over two decades.
As a municipal councillor, Waye has championed bringing transparency and accountability to Halifax Regional Council. Waye first got elected to council in 2012 and was re-elected in 2016 and 2020 due in part to what Halifax Magazine referred to as his “relentless constituency work.”
