Creating a Livable Community for all by addressing the social determinants of health - poverty, housing, education, health and employment.
Community Safety matters.
I support helping the citizens of Thunder Bay by addressing the social determinants of health through community action and collaborations.
This can be accomplished by supporting the work being done by:
Crime Prevention Council
Drug Strategy Committee
White Ribbon Campaign stopping violence against women
Everyone Matters Day addressing bullying in our community &
Collaborative community work based upon the Truth and Reconciliation Calls to Actions and the Seven Youth Inquest Recommendations.
Diversity and Respect
I commit to continuing the work of building a culture of respect and diversity and directing the necessary resources to ensure that no one is subject to racism, discrimination or abuse in our community.
I commit to reforming city by-laws and policies to build sustainable neighbourhoods based on mixed-use, mixed-income areas that allow people to live, work and play in a walkable space.
I commit to proactively engaging community groups, city agencies and social organizations to develop long term strategies to battle homelessness, addiction, mental illness and crime based on principles of harm reduction.
