Is the city managing growth appropriately? No. The City has not coordinated the pace of growth effectively. In certain neighbourhoods, growth has negatively impacted quality of life. Density and development have overtaken and overshadowed other important considerations in our community. It is time to be more thoughtful and inclusive about managing growth.

Should the city facilitate affordable housing and if so, how? Yes. The city should be lobbying senior levels of government for support and working with the development community exploring innovative use of zoning.
