Joscelyne Landry-Altmann (incumbent) I am a great believer in community consultation and have implemented community discussion whenever and wherever possible, consistently in the past 12 years.It has been my guide for better decision making.I have found that the most successful meaningful citizen engagement has been when staff and the community get together.Residents have the opportunity to voice their concerns and staff get the opportunity to familiarize and understand these concerns first hand..It has makes for a better outcome. Over the years,I have helped 3 CANs(Uptown,Flour Mill and New Sudbury)get started in the Ward-through volunteer participation of course, with the purpose of community consultaion and engagement in mind.Together we have acoomplished many good projects and addressed local concerns. Lately,the Primeauvillle designation project is a good example of a community coming together,We first got together in August of 2017.The resident expressed their concerns to staff and support agencies. We formulated a plan ,and got things done resulting in a neighborhood that is stronger,friendlier and saferand a lovely historic mural Primeauville to commemorate the work done. .Save our Mountain is another example .as is Junction Creek study:public meetings with staff in areas most affected . Another good example is when I initiated a motion to have the transportation master plan come back for further public consultation post first draft.(2016) and it did.Recommendations were improved. I will continue consulting with the residents as I always have.
Shawn Ouimet I have an open door policy, there are numerous ways to be in or stay in contact with all city staff and council. When I am making any decision or voting one way or another I would like to say I spoke with many citizens in my ward and outside, that I am not voting for a specific group or association to help only that group, my decisions will be unbiased. For that I will be able to sleep at night and will have no problem going out alone or with my family to work with community organizations to improve our city.

We need to stop having staff going out to do surveys and as a councillor we should meet residence to get input on how and what they want our city to become and be more accessible.”
