Endorsement Quote: "The platform provided provides a solid framework for what our City should be actively developing, if not following."

1. Stop the Loss ✔️Tenants Protections ❌Housing Acquisition: "I support developing and implementing a non-profit housing acquisition strategy, but whether the City should purchase out private market residential properties or not should be further developed and discussed throughout the strategy development process to ensure every option is exhausted before the strategy for the City is officially finalized."

1. Stop the Loss ✔️Tenants Protections ➗Housing Acquisition: "Not fully supportive. In some cases, purchasing older stock can be more expensive in the long run, including maintenance and replacement of electrical and plumbing, facade, and amenities. We need to weigh those costs with the costs of simply using policy tools at the city's disposal to allot a certain percentage of new development to affordable/subsidised housing."
2. Create More ✔️Inclusionary Zoning: "Especially helpful in areas with higher median incomes." ➗Increased Budget: "Partially. Funding needs to also come from other levels of government. This cannot be solely borne by the city. We can also explore partnering with non-profit agencies."
3. Preserve the Quality ➗Landlord Licensing: "Partially. Support oversight and enforcement tools through licencing to protect tenants, but all costs (maintenance repairs, legal costs) should be the responsibility of the landlord." ✔️Ombudsperson: "Independent perspective free of conflict and influence from other files will be helpful to guide the city's efforts. City council can then take recommendations and apply it within a plan and budget."

Endorsement Quote: "I'll continue to work to ensure that we improve the current state of affordable housing. It will be my pleasure work with those people and organizations who are working to provide awareness & working platforms for affordable housing in our city."

1. Stop the Loss ✔️Tenants Protections: "A landlord should be performing routine maintenance to avoid the need for serious construction work, and upgrades should be completed between tenants. Should a landlord need to vacate a unit to perform necessary work, the displaced occupants must be offered similar accommodations at the same rate in a nearby location, and/or have the right to return to their unit after work is complete." ❌Housing Acquisition: "What I am suggesting is that, City allocate a piece of land for affordable housing, If builder bring a plan to build 500 housing units, he has to build 100 affordable units at allocated land side by side. At his cost. Land will be provided by the City & units will be build by builder. Should builder be compensate for the cost? That can be revisit after consideration how much he will be going to pay towards City fees & permits."
2. Create More ✔️Inclusionary Zoning: "See housing acquisition answer." ✔️Increased Budget
3. Preserve the Quality ❌Landlord Licensing: "Partially, freezing property for sale, can have multiple issues. Major, if this property become part of estate than estate has to be distributed. Other than this, I am agree with other." ✔️Ombudsperson

1. Stop the Loss ✔️Tenants Protections: "The property rights of the owner must be recognized, however, proper notice and fair treatment towards the tenants must occur."
❌Housing Acquisition: "I would need more information and costing of the strategy before making a decision."
2. Create More ❓Inclusionary Zoning: "Zoning policy should be relatively inclusionary. In certain parts of the city, affordable housing may not be best situated."
❌Increased Budget: "I would require a cost breakdown before deciding. Would the federal and provincial governments be partners?"
3. Preserve the Quality ❌Landlord Licensing: "I support having landlords being effective ensuring property maintenance. The City could establish a bylaw which calls upon landlords to ensure repairs are completed otherwise, they could face fines."
❌Ombudsperson: "Between city staff, the mayor and councillors, no additional parties are necessary."
