dogandmedic.jpg

When I join a volunteer organization, I am known as the person who believes in teamwork and gets things done. I do more than just attend the meetings. I have always taken on projects to help build the community and see real results. District 12 deserves a councilor that is willing to do more than just sit at the table; we need a councilor that is willing to take action and make things happen.

What's Behind a Political Sign?

IMG_9800.JPGBeing environmentally conscious is more than a promise and good intentions.  In our culture, it seems everything is made to be transient, disposable, or for limited use.  Many companies are trying to lessen their impact on the environment, whether it is a paper wrapper instead of styrofoam, or offering a reduced price for using a refillable mug, but unless the consumer is on board, these efforts are not as effective as they could be.

Candlelight Vigil of Hope and Remembrance: MADD Canada

IMG_7034.jpgAs a paramedic for the last 21 years, I know first-hand the tragic consequences of impaired driving. Every day, on average, four Canadians are killed and 200 are injured as a result of alcohol and drug-related crashes. Impaired driving is the single leading criminal cause of death in Canada. Impaired driving kills or seriously injures 75,000 Canadian men, women, and children each year.

Particularly hurt are tenants in small strip malls. Here is a brief history. In 2005, the Province created Property Evaluation Services based in Truro to address inequities in the property tax system across the Province, designed primarily to allow seniors to remain in their homes.

In 2013, I joined the Five Bridges Wilderness Heritage Trust, because I believed in the goals of the organization and wanted to be part of the volunteers that protect, preserve, conserve and restore the natural habitat, watersheds, and wildlife on public lands.

Protecting the Bayers Mystery Walls begins with Research

Bayers Lake Mystery Walls

In 2013, vandalism to the Bayer's Lake Mystery Walls brought together a small group of concerned citizens that wanted more done to protect this historical site so that meaningful research could be conducted. It was concerning that this site had so much historical significance to our community and that without funding, the opportunity to better understand the site would be lost to treasure hunters and explorers.
