Community safety

  • Work with community health centres and other partners to develop a pilot project for a non-police crisis intervention team to help resolve conflicts related to addiction, homelessness or mental health challenges.
  • Revive our parks and community spaces by partnering with local community groups and businesses to increase programming opportunities and events. Rethink location of seating in Dundonald Park and assign full-time outreach staff to monitor any conflicts in the park and direct people to community resources.
  • Lobby for another safe consumption site in Centretown, closer to Bank or Elgin Street. Ensure that safe consumption sites have the resources to run 24/7 and enough spots to meet community needs.
  • Keep neighbours safe by advocating for more access to Safe Supply across the entire city, and expanding locations of sharps disposal units in public spaces
  • Combat hate by supporting local community solidarity and mutual aid networks, including educational initiatives aimed at bystander intervention and de-radicalization. Fully implement all of the recommendations from the City’s Anti-Racism Task Force.
