Staggering Elections

Mississauga is having a by-election for mayor this year, and another election for the same position will take place in two years. 

What if we used this as an opportunity to stagger the elections by two years? 

Staggering elections would ensure a mix of experienced leaders and newcomers, voters might be able to concentrate better on the candidates and issues, and it could reduce the pressure on candidates, voters, and election administrators, making campaigns and civic engagement more manageable.

It can be a gamechanger.

This initiative integrates biking with public transportation, aiming to make transportation more inclusive, affordable, and sustainable. Our objectives include improving accessibility, increasing time efficiency, promoting safety, and facilitating weather adaptability. 

To achieve this, we plan to launch a pilot program, engage stakeholders, conduct public awareness campaigns, and collect data on bike lane usage to justify and improve biking infrastructure across the city 

Mississauga's Housing Debate

In this Video we discuses the issue that when City Hall talks about housing, they blur the lines and use terms like affordable housing instead of attainable housing, or available housing, which does not specifically address the need for "affordable housing." This can be problematic.

When City Hall uses vague terms, they might not be addressing the specific needs of those struggling to find affordable places to live. This could lead to a lack of support for those who need it most, such as homeless individuals or people with low-paying jobs.

It is time to change our understanding of Housing.

More Housing is Coming, no matter who is elected

Candidates' housing plans addressing these issues may be influenced by external factors, such as government mandates, rather than purely altruistic intentions. 

While this demonstrates strategic political positioning and opportunistic campaigning, it also raises questions about the ethical nature of such an approach
