My Vision for St. Catharines

Since 2006, we have been working hard to make St. Catharines better. Now the real work begins.

There will be challenges ahead and we will need real local solutions – not just platitudes – to keep your city moving forward.

For the first time in a generation, St. Catharines is getting its fair share.  Since I was first elected, the federal government has responded by investing more than $372 million in our city.

Now we must build on those investments.  Working together, we can make a better St. Catharines that the next generation will call home.
