"Pickering needs a fighter who stands up for the ordinary hardworking taxpayers to get the City working just as hard as they do!"
What I'll Do For You
Work Toward Responsible Development
Restrict additional buildings in historical neighbourhoods and preserve the community’s identity and environment.
Broaden the Tax Base through Small Business Tax Rebate
Propose a Small Business Tax Rebate and a Three Year Property Tax Subsidy which is of no expense to the city.
Make Our Community Safer
Implement traffic calming, extend a subway along Kingston Road and support Crime Prevention initiatives.
Here are my solutions for our Ward which will benefit our residents and the City:
A Small Business Start-Up Tax Credit for Pickering Residents who would like to start a business in our community to broaden the Tax Base.
A Halt on all Kingston Road High-Rise Intensification until the Scarborough Subway Extension is approved by the Provincial Government.
A Redirection of Casino Revenue to increase the Property Tax Rebate for our Fixed-Income Seniors making it more accessible to keep up with the Cost of Living.
Expanding our Capital Expenditures to include an animal shelter expansion and initiate overnight animal rescue services.
Recognize Twyn Rivers, Woodlands, South Rosebank, West Shore, and Fairport Beach as historical communities to protect its heritage and environment.
