Yes. As a city councilor, I would work to expand our tree canopy across River Ward, including working with the Canada Lands Corporation to ensure that new development at Confederation Heights will increase shade and create a climate-resilient neighbourhood.

The expansion of our tree canopy should include the preservation of irreplaceable mature trees, to protect against extreme heat events, and the addition of more fruit and nut bearing trees throughout the city.
