Christina Early Area Councillor Candidate for Ward 2 (Town of Caledon)
How long have you been a Caledon Resident?
Caledon resident since 1996.
What would you change and/or improve in Caledon?
Given my candidacy for Ward 2, I would immediately look to try and improve the conditions of the roads in Ward 2 ….the pot holes are problematic and have become dangerous with drivers trying to navigate around them. This is a costly fix and requires total resurfacing, as the patch work does not appear to be working.
If you were to receive a million dollar grant for the Town of Caledon, what would you do with it and why?
Given the aging population, The Health Care system weighs heavily on my mind; specifically given the overflow with our hospitals most notably Brampton. With growth planned on the west side of Caledon, the thought of some sort of a state of the art ….non-urgent healthcare facility will be required in the future. I suggest that the million could start the discussions and the development of the white papers to determine cost and feasibility for the future.
What is your favourite place in Caledon and why?
I love to walk so I spend a lot of time on the Trails, but my most favourite place is walking the farm fields with our dog … the walk and land really provides tremendous peace after a busy day.
