Ottawa City Hall has lost trust with the people of Ottawa and particularly with us in Rideau-Vanier.
In particular, I refuse to accept developer donations - in fact, no candidates should accept donations from developers.
We need to rebuild trust between our city institutions and the people that make Ottawa such a wonderful place to live.
We can do this by:
- Banning developer donations to city council and mayoral candidates
- Making sure that city committees have a mix of membership from across all areas of the city, including representation from urban, suburban and rural wards.
- Running city consultations that accurately reflect the views and demographics of city residents, including reaching out to traditionally underrepresented groups who face barriers to participation in the decision-making process
