Subsidize Wages & Rent

Help for small businesses to hire new employees and cover overheads. 

I will provide a 50% subsidy to pay rent and wages, up to a $100k, to small businesses that hire a minimum of 4 employees that work 40 hours a week. 

Increase Teacher Wages

By 10%

Teachers play a crucial role in seeing our youth prosper and facilitating a smarter population. I will increase the wages that Calgary's hard-working educators deserve. 

Rent to Own

Responsible, long-term renters deserve the option to own their home. 

I will enact a program for renters to own their dwelling after paying $500 monthly for 20 years, or $1000 monthly for 10 years.

Transit Passes

Accessible transit is needed to get cars off the road, young people to school, and elderly people where they need to go.

I will subsidize transit passes by 50% for these groups.

Fighting racism

To combat racism, I will make Indigenous Studies and Racial Injustice Studies mandatory in grade school curriculums.

Better Police

In an effort to reduce unfair treatment and bad encounters with minorities, I will eliminate the bad cops that make the other 99% look bad, hire more good cops and reduce overtime.

Equity, Diversity & Inclusion

I will push for increased accountability for racial and gender-based discrimination.  

Affordable Housing

I will enact rent control laws, and provide subsidies and grants for affordable housing. 

I will convert empty offices downtown into affordable condos. 

 

Mental Health Support

I will hire more psychologists, psychiatrists, social workers and nurses to fight for mental health, and raise their pay by 10%.

 

The rate of suicide in Alberta & Canada is sadly unfortunate and I will do all I can to reduce that. Victims of mental health will no more be neglected under my leadership.
