Klazinga, Stewart Yes Yes.

Firstly I believe that dollar for dollar, an investment into a more vulnerable population has a greater return on investment than that same investment into a population which has less of a need. Transit serves many of our most vulnerable populations, so I see it as an obvious investment. We need to eliminate area rating for transit. We need to provide appropriate transit to the entire city. Everyone should pay for it & everyone should have access to it.
Maldonado, Juanita Yes Once a City Councillor is elected, they should not be assigned to a Ward. This will ensure that we can work together to do what’s best for the City overall. This would eliminate the territorialism and vote-trading that occurs. Area rating would not be an issue.
