  • Please review the work of http://www.PeoplesPlatform.ca. This is a perfect example of residents getting together to identify and vote upon common priorities. Let’s continue this work after the election and educate residents so they can review and approve all major planning and spending decisions coming from City Hall. A citywide expansion of participatory budgeting would be a good start, but it must not be operated as a slush fund for councillors. Residents should be deciding how to invest our money in our communities and the dollar amounts we control should only increase over time.
