Last year, I had the pleasure of aiding the transformation of Downtown Saskatoon into a vibrant, livable urban neighborhood that the city’s residents will be proud of. A detailed description of our plans can be found here:
Prince Rupert is retooling to take command of its future.

This vision is for the people, inspired by the people. We worked with thousands of Bramptonians in efforts to see what the full potential of Brampton truly is, and out of that came the groundbreaking 2040 vision. But the vision is just the start. It is up to every single citizen to play their part and push it forward, and make the vision a reality.
