I stand for community, sustainability and transformative action. Today we face monumental challenges of aging infrastructure, climate change, and reconciliation. From this arises unique opportunities to create resilient parks and community centres that serve the diverse needs of residents. My experience in community building, architecture, and stewardship position me to lead our city in creating robust parks and resources for everyone.
