BNR Rollout

The Bus Network Redesign rollout was certainly not without its challenges, but it was never meant to be set in stone — it’s a foundation to build better service for everyone. Changes have already been made based on user feedback, and that process is ongoing. Keep the feedback coming so ETS can continue to make those adjustments and fixes.

Realistically, large-scale service and coverage improvements will require more investment. I will continue to push for sound fiscal management and investments that get us the most value for the resources we have.

Bev's Three Pillars: #1: Economy & Jobs

Even before the pandemic, we were seeing the economy and individuals being impacted by changes in the oil and gas sector and a decrease in spending by the province. In response to this, we already had initiatives underway to help businesses and individuals get back on track, and living through these times, the City can incentivize business growth and development to get our economy moving again.

Face Covering Bylaw

Covid continues to challenge our community and we are seeing escalating case counts as part of the fourth wave. Many jurisdictions across Canada are responding with increased safety measures. Medical officials have identified masks as one of the tools we can use to combat the pandemic. Ultimately vaccinations are the only way to truly address the pandemic and I support people getting vaccinations. There are still many who are not able to get vaccinations, including children under 12. In early summer we saw declining case counts and increasing vaccination rates, suggesting an end to the pandemic was in sight. Unfortunately, the latest variant continues to be highly contagious and we are seeing case counts and hospitalizations going up.
