Q: If elected, how do you plan to address issues of late night disturbances and vandalism in the downtown core?

A: I believe that the current council has done a lot to deal with our downtown issues. A busy, vibrant downtown core is a problem many communities wish they had. We initiated a bylaw re-write. We have passed a nuisance bylaw to aid the RCMP with enforcement issues. We initiated downtown cameras, and responded to negative feedback from the public by cancelling the initiative. We have added more light to the streetscape. We must now look forward to recommendations from the new downtown taskforce, and follow their guidance in this matter.
