Platform Summary

Priorities

Improved transit with reduced gridlock (LRT, weekend service of GO trains), advocate for anti-poverty and homelessness measures, creating more recreational hubs for seniors in wards 7 & 8, offering more skills training and opportunities for youth, freezing taxes. I understand the vital role that businesses play in building a stronger economy and creating jobs. I believe that forming strategic alliances and raising Brampton’s investment profile will help to attract and retain new businesses that will support job growth. Engaging private and public sectors as partners in managing and sustaining growth in socially- and fiscally-responsible ways will ensure a quality of life within our communities that generations present and future will enjoy.
