GREATER SUDBURY SHOULD BE
A SAFE, CLEAN COMMUNITY
WHERE WE CAN ALL
LIVE, WORK AND PLAY!
A healthy city starts with healthy communities. Greater Sudbury’s neighbourhoods cover both urban and rural areas, and have a wide range of priorities and concerns.
In order to foster good health and active living, I will advocate:
1. Investing in our parks and trails.
I am committed to protecting and celebrating our lakes and green spaces, and we are lucky to have a wonderful network of parks and trails across our city. However, some of these areas are lacking a plan for continued investment, improvements, and upkeep. I will work with community groups including Rainbow Routes, the Coalition for a Liveable Sudbury, and our Community Action Networks to ensure we wisely invest in our parks and trails.
2. Supporting our recreational programs and facilities.
Some of our arenas and facilities are in serious need of renovation. As we plan for the future and invest, I want to find creative solutions that prioritize accessibility to residents, utilize existing infrastructure, and ensure the best value for taxpayers money. I am also committed to seeing the therapeutic pool project in Azilda through to completion, as that will be a great asset for our community.
3. Supporting our most vulnerable.
I will advocate affordable housing, independent living developments for seniors, and getting police back walking the beat to make neighbourhoods safer. I also want to reduce the amount of discarded needles in the streets by expanding Greater Sudbury’s needle exchange program to include a safe consumption site in the Donovan/Flour Mill area"
