Priority #3: Places

My reason:

The way we build our city shapes our mental health and well-being.

I am a healthcare professional experienced in supporting positive health outcomes for individuals and families. I understand the impact of environment – natural and man-made – on health. I will help guide our City to make the decisions needed so that our physical, built environments promote social cohesion and protect our mental health and well-being.

My commitments:

  • I will support land use planning and development that balances our competing needs for privacy, nature, liveliness, connection and convenience for all ages and income levels.
  • I will help ensure our existing neighbourhoods are designed or regenerated so everyone, at every age and ability, has access to a variety of experiences, parks and green spaces and can access local healthy food options close to where they live.
