Q13 - Will you commit to developing strategies that bring Ottawans at all diversity intersections together on environmental issues?

John Redins


Hussein Mahmoud

Yes. As the son of Lebanese-Canadian immigrants, part of what inspired me to run was to ensure that we have all the voices of our community represented at city council. I think we need to ensure everyone’s voice is heard, that we’re consulting with community more than just at election time, and that we are listening to the needs of residents from a diverse range of groups before we move forward with decisions that will impact the whole community.

Taylor Houstoun

Yes. Of course! And you would be surprised how similar we are. My ward overlaps both Pierre Poilievre's Riding and David McGuinty's, and yet the voters are unanimous in wanting to protect our greenery across political, economic, and racial divides. I have had no trouble doing this so far and expect that to continue. Ultimately, we all want the same things. It's just a matter of how we get there!

Everyone deserves a seat at the table, and with smart decision making that balances stakeholder interests, we can almost always find a path forward in my experience.

Ron Keays

Yes. Every element of our society should feel included in the decision making process, and I will work with all community groups to ensure they feel represented.
