Why Am I Running?
The issues that are important to Kanata-Carleton
Balancing the Budget
For a more fiscally responsible Canada
Ontario's history of reckless spending needs to stop. We need to get our budget balanced and our debt under control so that we can provide much needed supports for seniors and those who are struggling.
For hard-working Canadians
Hard-working people across Canada are hurting as the government takes more of their pay cheques through increased taxes. We need to look at ways of putting more money back in the pockets of individuals, families, and entrepreneurs.
For more caring communities
Kanata has a vibrant seniors population. We need to ensure that our federal government is providing the right support to meet their needs, including through good healthcare, strong long-term care, and financial security.
Supporting Small Business & Entrepreneurs
For the long-term success of Kanata
Small businesses are the backbone of our economy. We need job-friendly policies that support small businesses and our high-tech sector in Kanata.
Ottawa's Infrastructure Needs
For our City's long-term growth
Ottawa is growing. With the Confederation Line set to come online in 2018, we need to make sure that the next government in Canada recognizes the needs of Ottawa.
Helping Individuals with Disabilities
For a more compassionate Canada
I know that from my family's experience with my brother that across Canada there are thousands of individuals with disabilities who are in desperate need of additional support from the government. We need to work together to build a more compassionate country.
