    What are the issues for Ward 12?

    For me, it is transit, and roads. I am sure that there are other issues. What are they?

    I really hope I see some candidates expressing some concrete ideas.

    When I look at campaign websites for city council candidates, I see a lot of policy buzzwords and high-end fluff..."I believe in vibrancy, sustainability, public transit, safe communities, yadda cubed"....might as well state you like puppies and babies while you're at it.

    What concrete ideas do candidates have for vibrancy, safe communities, public transit, sustainability, fiscal responsibility, etc?
    What's your stance on current and long-term issues?
    What's your stance on the current and future big-ticket projects - arena, Quarters, YXD redevelopment, LRT expansion, Rossdale, river valley development, parks, etc?
    What is broken and how will you fix it?
    Where is improvement needed and how will you improve it?
    Where do you want your ward, the city and the metro area to be in 20 years time?

      Agreed, SDM. Problem is most people never look beyond the surface.

        Widening of 17th and 34th between Whitemud and SPF would be nice. Studies are already done. Trucks make those roads a nightmare during rush hour.
